Notes & Reviews:
Written in 1752, Micromegas is a philosophical tale inspired by Swift's Gulliver's Travels. With its poetry of a quiet musical, Mefano leads us to perhaps ask whether it is man's awareness of just how small he is that makes him great.
An Opera by Paul Mefano: Micromegas, the recording comes complete with the full text of Voltaire.
American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Paul Mefano's "action lyrique" in seven parts is a sort of opera on a short story by the same title written by Voltaire in the mid-18th Century. Its themes are wide-ranging both in their topic and their seriousness. Some of the characters are giants; others are supposed to be microscopically small. The music itself is mostly consistent.
