Reves d'un Marco Polo: The Life and Work of Claude Vivier [2 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Many consider Claude Vivier (1948-83) the greatest composer Canada has yet produced. György Ligeti once called him ‘the finest French composer of his generation’. The two parts of Rêves d’un Marco Polo are like shadow and light, forming a dreamlike ritualistic experience and encompassing stage productions of his finest compositions. Pierre Audi's superb and moving staging is complemented by refined, passionate musical direction from Reinbert de Leeuw, leading the soloists, the Asko Ensemble and the Schönberg Ensemble to great heights. Also included is a spellbinding and insightful documentary on the life and work of Claude Vivier.
