In celebration of the Schumann-year 2010

Robert Schumann wrote his oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri on Persian fairy tales, a rather unusual subject in a period when oratorios were mainly based on biblical history.

As always in Schumann’s case his way of treating the form is highly original and imaginative. Rather than keeping in the tradition of separate sections of recitative, aria and choruses, he blended the form in a

continuous stream of action, in which motives related to persons or situations were the main dramatic features. In this he paved the way for Richard Wagner’s musical dramas.

Wonderful soloists: Julia Faulkner, Florence Quivar and others, and the oldest (and some say best…) orchestra of Germany, Staatskapelle Dresden, conducted by the late Giuseppe Sinopoli.

Complete text of the oratorio included in the booklet.
