Frank Martin (c) Universal Edition

Simply put, Martin’s Le vin herbé is passionate, yes, but, unlike Wagner’s music drama, is wonderfully discreet, objective, and inward. Deep emotion is, paradoxically, generated through an essential restraint.

Professor Byron Adams, Professor in the Music Department of the University of California, Riverside, provides insight on Frank Martin’s Le vin herbé on the Boston Lyrics Opera’s blog. Find their blog here.
