Notes & Reviews:
With his 'Saul', the Italian composer Flavio Testi joins the select company of great musicians who have retold the eminently tragic story of the king of Israel and his tormented relationship with his son Jonathan and the shepherd David who will succeed to his throne. But unlike Handel, Charpentier and Nielsen, he has not based his work directly on the Bible, but on the highly personal drama by Andre Gide.
