Album Summary

>Hindemith, Paul : Das lange Weihnachtsmahl (The Long Christmas Dinner), opera in 1 act
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Hindemith's score is spare and transparent; the beginning and end quote the carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, and there are other references to dance forms from various era. It's curiously endearing, and the cool authority of Marek Janowski's performance really helps. He unpacks Hindemith's contrapuntal writing with great clarity, and the vocal performances, led by Ruth Ziesak and Ursula Hesse von de Steinen, are equally caring." - The Guardian
