Notes & Reviews:

On July 1st, one of the most distinguished and striking composers of our time turned 80 - Hans Werner Henze. Henze completed the five-part 'Orpheus' cycle in Tanglewood in the summer of 1983. The songs were premiered in September 1985 by the BBC Singers under John Alldis. During almost sixty years of collaboration with the Schott publishing house, Henze has written over 40 works for the stage and 10 symphonies, concertos, chamber music, oratorios, song cycles and a requiem consisting of nine concertos. This new CD featuring 'Orpheus behind the Wire' and the world premiere recording of 'Aristaeus' is packaged in a luxury slipcase, and includes a 56-page booklet.
