About

Knussen’s one-act opera which brilliantly matches the grotesque fantasy of Sendak’s children’s book of the same name.

‘The LP recording of Oliver Knussen's fantasy opera is pretty remarkable, but the CD version is stunning. The impression to begin with is of sitting in a very good front stall — close enough to need to turn your head as the cast move about the stage…. On record one notices the imaginativeness of Knussen's sounds more: in a way, they can provide more evocative scenery than even Sendak can.’ — Gramophone

‘The record presents the piece with all the bite of a live performance…. The brilliant recording vividly conveys a sense of presence and space.’ — Penguin Guide
