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.

Applause

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.”

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.”
