Catalogue Number: 11X007
Description: We offered this work as a DVD-only release back in December of 2015 and, for a larger discussion of it see 12R010 in that catalogue. Here’s what another pretty good composer thought of it: “I simply cannot stop enthusing about Weinberg’s The Passenger. I’ve heard it three times now, studied the score, and every time I understand more of the beauty and greatness of this music. It is a work of consummate form and style and its subject extremely relevant.” (Dmitri Shostakovich). 2 CDs. German-English libretto. Dshamilija Kaiser (mezzo), Nadja Stefanoff (soprano), Will Hartmann (tenor), Markus Butter (baritone), Graz Opera Chorus, Graz Philharmonic; Roland Kluttig.
