In his debut recording on LSO Live, Sir Simon Rattle conducts a stunning performance of Schumann’s rarely recorded Das Paradies und die Peri featuring a superb line-up of soloists. Rattle is well-known for being a champion of this rarely heard work, calling it “the great masterpiece you’ve never heard.”
Based on an episode from Thomas Moore’s epic poem “Lalla Rookh,” itself inspired by exotic, colorful tales taken from Persian mythology, Das Paradies und die Peri tells how the Peri, a legendary creature, was expelled from paradise and follows her quest to redeem herself by giving the gift that is most dear to heaven.
This 2-CD set includes program notes in English, French, and German, plus the full German libretto with English translation. Also includes a bonus disc with the concert presented in Blu-Ray Audio, playable on all Blu-Ray players.
