Notes & Reviews:
"an extended piece for contralto and chamber orchestra, a nearly hour-long tour-de-force that demands much of the singer while creating a rare, other-world atmosphere that at once envelops the listener and illuminates Rilke's strange, affecting tale, where violence and death are always nearby, but where simple pleasures and tender moments are cherished and respectfully shared... Contralto Christianne Stotijn is nothing less than magnificent." -Classics Today (9/10)
BBC Music Magazine
One of the most powerful and profound song cycles of the last century and unquestionably one of its best-kept secrets. àthe young Dutch singer Christianne Stotijn rises to its demandsà Die Weise is a masterpiece, a very powerful musical experience and this fine account by the Winterthur Orchestra and Jac van Steen serves it well.
