Description: Originally intended as the first part of an evening-long concert but interrupted by the breaking out of the war in 1939, La Taille sets a text by the Swiss writer Raduz (of Soldier's Tale fame) emphasizing the stark, disspassionate neutrality of man's place in the universe and contrasting that with the richness of his terrestrial environment. This music contrasts with a dispassionate, relentless, often brutal voice which was far too apt, coming at the very beginning of the impending Holocaust and driving home the utter insignificance of the individual in an unfeeling universe. French-English texts. Lucy Shelton (soprano), Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra; Christopher Lyndon-Gee. Original 2001 Marco Polo release.
