Wolfgang Rihm: Tutuguri – Poème dansé
"It’s a massive, unruly, and unrestrained beast. Although based on a poem, Tutuguri is not exactly programmatic or episodic. Rather, Rihm’s writing evokes the fragmentary feeling of a nightmare..." (ClassicsToday.com) Massive, indeed, as Rihm's commission by the Deutscher Oper Berlin spans four images and 45 minutes. "The sound is gorgeous, too–the cracking thunder (or is it gunfire?) of the drums in the fourth movement is terrifyingly vivid." Dur.: 45'
