WOLFGANG FORTNER "PRISMEN / BLUTHOCHZEIT" (WERGO, 1963/74)


...a few days ago I remembered Sotise's request for this LP - finally after more than two years....


Side A:

PRISMEN (25:15)
für Soloinstrumente und Orchester (1974)
Roswitha Staege, flute
Erich Bolz, oboe
Dietrich Fritsche, clarinet
Doris Kahlenbach, harp
Richard Armbruster, percussion
Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Saarbrücken
Hans Zender, conductor


Side B:

BLUTHOCHZEIT (14:58)
3 Zwischenspiele aus der Lyrischen Tragödie
von Frederico Garcia Lorca für großes Orchester (1963)
Sinfonieorchester des Südwestfunks
Ernest Bour, conductor


WERGO WER 60 077
(lp rip)

Note: "Bluthochzeit" (Blood Wedding) are the interludes to Fortner's opera of the same title.
Yet they stand separately as socalled "absolute music" according to Wolfgang Fortner.
The opera (lyric tragedy) itself was based on the drama "Bodas se sangre" from Frederico Garcia Lorca. Lorca himself was killed by the spanish fascists (Falange) at the beginning of the spanish civil war.
Apart from his poetic arts Lorca was considered as an exceptionally gifted musician...
