Schönberg: Moses und Aron


Add To Wish List + $24.29 ($26.99) - This item has been discontinued, and will no longer be available once out of stock.

Schoenberg's masterpiece in the twelve-tone system he
developed was his unfinished opera "Moses und Aron", a
vastly complex work based on a single tone row. That it
remained a fragment may be essential to its spiritual
message, for while Schoenberg never stated it explicitly, it
would seem that he left this most ambitious project of his
mature style incomplete on purpose. It is almost as
though it would be impious to give a final and definitive
form to matters so profound and spiritual; like the name of
Yahweh they are ineffable.
Even today, Arnold Schoenberg's opera "Moses und
Aron" is an incredibly intense listening experience.
Whatever one thinks about Schoenberg‘s musical
language - here it finds an expressiveness and cohesion
which the listener cannot escape. This is especially the
case in this new production of a work which does not
appear on CD too often, sounding wonderfully transparent
even in its most powerful and loudest moments.
Appearing in the role of Moses, the world-famous baritone
Franz Grundheber delivers an impressive characterization
of the prophetic/revolutionary. Tenor Andreas Conrad
embodies Moses‘ practically oriented brother Aron with a
rare intensity, and the EuropaChorAkademie are
outstanding as the third component of the drama, the
Israelites. The entire production is overseen by one of the
most convincing conductors for this repertoire, Sylvain
Cambreling who leads the flawlessly playing orchestra.
