2010 marks the 50th anniversary of Albert Camus’ death. In his memory, OehmsClassics is publishing this opera, whose libretto was written by Hans-Ulrich Treichel and based on Camus’ eponymous drama. This is a live recording of the premiere at the Frankfurt Opera in 2006. The performance was a highly celebrated operatic event. The first edition is limited and signed by the composer.

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2010

“Ashley Holland in the title-role shapes his own arioso reflections on loneliness with suavity under pressure and the supporting cast seems admirably secure for a first performance; doubtless much of the credit must go to Markus Stenz for keeping Strauss and Berg behind us, present as shadows but not overpowering Glanert's own voice.”

The Guardian

29th April 2010


“an impressive achievement...the sense of scarcely suppressed menace that pervades the work and carries unmistakable echoes of Strauss's Elektra and Salome is powerfully conjured...Ashley Holland [is] quite outstanding in the title role...and Markus Stenz realis[es] the subtleties of Glanert's score with wonderful clarity.”
