Pintscher: Herodiade Fragmente / Sur Depart on CD

Pintscher: Herodiade Fragmente, Sur Depart, Music Aus Thomas Chatterton / Eschenbach / Composer: Matthias Pintscher / Performer: Dietrich Henschel, Claudia Barainsky / Conductor: Christoph Eschenbach / Orchestra/Ensemble: North German Radio Symphony Orchestra Hamburg, North German Radio Chorus Hamburg / This Apex disc is a budget-price reissue of material originally released on Teldec in 2001, one of the first portraits of Matthias Pintscher. The German composer was born in 1971 and made a name for himself in the 1990s by extending his country's avant-garde tradition. Here Christoph Eschenbach leads the NDR-Sinfonieorchester Hamburg in music for voice(s) and orchestra."Musik aus 'Thomas Chatterton'" for baritone and orchestra (1998) is a concert suite of bits from Pintscher's opera on the English poet and literary forger who died at the age of 18. Dietrich Henschel is the baritone. "Hérodiade Fragmente" for soprano and orchestra (1999) is a setting of Stéphane Mallarmé's dramatic poem on the Jewish princess Herodias, divided roughly into two parts separated by long silence. The writing for soprano is hyperbolic, articulating grand sonic contours with the intelligibility of the poem ascribed a lesser role. Claudia Barainsky appears in the soprano role. "sur 'Départ'" (2000) sets a Rimbaud poem for three orchestral groups, three solo cellos, and sixteen women's voices.
