Description: Written in Berlin in 1943 to a very telescoped libretto (a pocket Romeo in 71 min.!), Blacher's opera is a combination of jazz and cabaret, pulsing with repetitive rhythms, standard jazz harmonic patterns and a free approach to melody. Needless to say, this was not performed during the Third Reich. Libretto included. David Robinson (tenor), N'Kenge Simpson (soprano), Chesapeake Chamber Orchestra; Jeffrey Silberschlag.
