Naxos: Although Das Wunder der Heliane may have languished, forgotten for almost a century, its overpowering emotional impact and unbridled, bi-tonal lyricism now strikes a resonant chord with audiences. This may explain the unprecedented 20-minute ovation it received at the premiere of this new production in Berlin.
Thanks to this recording, the unique Heliane experience can now be enjoyed by everyone and its ongoing future on the stage finally seems assured.
