SALVATORE SCIARRINO (b.1947): Lohengrin.
Catalogue Number: 04J121
Reference: STR 57006
Description: The Lohengrin story as retold as a monodrama from the point of view of the crazed Else, tormented by sounds and impressions which may be real, or dreams. Both the narrative and the music present a montage of images in which the unravelling of a tormented mind involves us in its disquieting spectacle. This is no more easy listening than William Burroughs is light reading - but once you start, you will be tormented by the need to find out how the nightmare plays itself out. Originally offered in November 1977 (11-066). Italian-English texts. Daisy Lumini (voice), Gruppo Strumentale Musica d'Oggi; Salvatore Sciarrino.
