Notes & Reviews:
Rare complete recording of Henze's 1972 "recital for four musicians," El Cimarron, which means "runaway slave." This dramatic piece features a baritone portraying the real-life drama of a Cuban exslave named Esteban Montejo. "The music strikes a fine balance between the austerity of the scenic 'actions' so popular in the '60s with the lusher traditions of full-scale opera ... powerfully effective." - New York Times
