Description: The extreme mental states of Plath's poems bring equally extreme and wild responses from Reimann, whose 1975 half-hour long cycle will warm (chill?) the hearts of avant-garde vocal collectors. Celan's long poem is equally disturbing in its images (Holocaust? nuclear annhiliation?) and Reimann gives it a cantata-like setting in 1967. The Eichendorff settings (1966 and 1978) are relatively relaxing after such psychodrama. German-English texts. Catherine Gayer (soprano), Ernst Haefliger (tenor), Barry McDaniel (baritone), Aribert Reimann (piano). Original 1986 Orfeo LP releases.
