Catalogue Number: 09M080
Description: Appassionatamente plus is the second, extended version, of a score adapted in 2003 from the 1990 opera Gogo no Eiko which we offered complete last November (11L084). As we said then, "Harmonically rich, with a sense of tonality in the complex, linear development of themes, the music has a sense of symphonic scope rare in opera since Wagner, excepting Britten - the orchestral interludes and entractes sound like extracts from Henze's symphonic œuvre." Julia Bauer (soprano), Essen Philharmonic; Stefan Soltesz.
