Holliger, Heinz - Schneewittchen


Lägg till önskelista + 299 kr - Ej i lager

"The musical treatment is comparatively straightforward, with emphasis placed on the definition of vocal lines in conveying the surreal whimsy of the libretto. To say that the judiciously chosen chamber orchestra is predominantly an accoustic echo-chamber for the voices is not to play down its importance; indeed, this is the most fluid and intricate orchestration Holliger has yet attempted, with an aural coherence that sustains the drama through numerous discontinuities in narrative. A strong cast, fresh form the première staging in Zurich last year, is headed by the vibrant Snow White of Juliane Banse, and the many-shaded Queen of Cornelia Kallisch. Steve Davislim is a properly mock-heroic Prince, with Oliver Widmer a jejune Huntsman. Working with a surprisingly forward ECM sound balance, Holliger demonstrates his conducting prowess in maintaining dramatic flow at all times."
(International Record Review)

Heinz Holliger's first full length opera is a radical reworking of the Snow White story, with libretto based on the version by Swiss author Robert Walser. The opera opened in Zürich to rave reviews, applauded for its energy, invention, wit and psychological insight. Soprano singer Juliane Banse was singled out for her exceptionally inspired performance in the title role. This New Series recording features the original cast, under the direction of the composer.
