Notes & Reviews:
The Greek Passion became for Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) an opera epilogue whose humanistic message surpasses that of all the others owing to the sheer power of the faith and emotion. Martinu liked experimenting with opera - from setting folk texts, legends and commedie dell'arte through new formations for radio and television to opera-film, opera ballet and opera-dream. The Greek Passion was first staged almost two years after the composer's death, in Zurich on 9 June 1961. In the autumn of 1981, the independent preparations for this gramophone recording courageously strove to bring the Czech text closer to the original deep spiritual sense of this extraordinary work for the first time.Notes & Reviews:
