Orfeo is pleased to release a live recording of the first performance, which was given by the forces of the Bavarian State Opera in 1980. The vocal soloists are the renowned Texan soprano Helen Donath and Hermann Becht, both notable for the clarity that they bring to the dense texts of Hesse and Else Lasker-Schüler. The Munich Oratorio Choir, the Bavarian State Orchestra and, last but not least, Wolfgang Sawallisch on the podium, guarantee a performance capable of doing justice to the composer's masterly command of orchestral effects. The work's more intimate, chamber-like moments are entrusted to the composer himself on the viola and to two of his fellow chamber musicians, the violinist Ingo Sinnhoffer and the cellist Franz Amann.
The lyrical qualities of Blendinger’s oratorio also characterise his Clarinet Concerto Op. 72, which is included in this Orfeo release. The soloist in this latter work is Hans Schöneberger, another of Blendinger's colleagues from his days as a member of the Bavarian State Orchestra.
