Dear customers, we would like to inform you that due to the current situation concerning the novel corona virus, exit restrictions have been imposed in Austria. For this reason we kindly ask you to send all requests in written form to [email protected]. We ask for your patience in case we are not able to process your requests at the usual speed - due to legal regulations, companies in Austria are currently only able to operate at reduced capacity. However, we would like to assure you that Universal Edition will continue to look after its customers in times like these. Best regards, your Universal Edition team.
"The work is a tour de force for soprano, positively awash in lyricism: for at least half of its 45-minute length, limpid, flowing Straussian melody." (James R. Oestreich, The New York Times)
"Rihm's music is not about the spiritual anguish of a lost world; it is about rediscovery. It is about the responsibility every artist has to redefine communication and, in the process, to redefine what touches an audience, not just to harp on what pushes it away." (Fernando Rivas, Charleston City Paper)
