This is an absolutely genius piece of music theater by the living composer Salvatore Sciarrino. It is a dark, psychological sort of retake on the Lohengrin story.
I suggest everyone read the text file inside: I was too lazy to type out the whole (italian) libretto but I typed out the rest of the liner notes. Makes it easier to understand for those not immediately predisposed to such uncompromising contemporary music.
rezpec. i like sciarrino and will check this out.
Nice. I don’t know too much of Sciarrino’s music, but heard his viola studies a while back. Probably some of the most jaw dropping classical music I’ve heard so far. Electronic music on a viola, tru.
is he the dude who composed ‘de la nuit’ which mix all 3 mvt of gaspard into one?
ah yes you guys know him! wonderful
please, for a recording of ‘de la nuit’?
pianist unknown though
pretty sure that’s Massimiliano Damerini
curious to know what you guys thought of the Lohengrin rec so i can better gauge what to upload in the future.
