The almost completely forgotten 'Rübezahl und der Sackpfeifer von Neisse' was first performed in 1904 in Brunswick, and in the following year in Berlin and Weimar, under the baton of Richard Strauss, with whom Sommer formed a close friendship. Its special feature is the post-Romantic melodic writing, admittedly with certain foundations in Wagner’s music.
