Reference: 910 1614-6
Description: This new release has the only available CD recording of the 20-minute suite from Martin's opera which premiered in 1956. Consisting of an overture, two of Prospero's fifth-act arias and closing with his monologue to the audience in front of the curtain, this music was long associated with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau who sang the role both in the opera and in the suite's 1961 premiere. His DG recording of both this and the Jedermann Monologues is again out of print. German-English texts. Thomas Oliemans (baritone), Stavanger Symphony Orchestra; Steven Sloane. SACD hybrid
