Notes & Reviews:
'El Cimarron' (1970) is a milestone of politically-engaged music theater - and a key event in Hans Werner Henze's career. In this "recital for four musicians," the composer tells the story of Esteban Montejo (sung here by bass-baritone Angelo De Leonardis) - an escaped Cuban slave who, at the remarkable age of 104, was interviewed extensively about his life (and taped) by the Cuban ethnologist Miguel Barnet.
