Humperdinck's music reproduces, with infinite art, the tender and childlike charm of the delightful old fairy tale.
Humperdinck is the first German operatic composer of distinct individuality since the death of Wagner.
Humperdinck's melody is founded upon the Volkslied, and he uses at least one nursery tune with charming effect.
