Description: This 55-minute oratorio (with a 12-minute orchestral prelude) is exactly what you’d expect from a young composer growing up in the sound worlds of Richard Strauss and Mahler and infatuated with the Nietzscean poetry of Richard Dehmel - opulent, colorful and bordering on the ecstatic in places. Completed in 1904, it had to wait until 1911 for its premiere. German-English texts. Heidi Melton (soprano), Gerhild Romberger (alto), Roman Sadnik (tenor), Vladimir Baykov (bass), National Female Youth Choir, Large Radio Choir, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic; Markus Stenz.
