Opera in the 20th century

The history of twentieth century opera.

When compared to previous years, 1997 can be characterised as a year with less new opera productions. However, there are two excellent new works by the American composer Mark-Anthony Turnage. Consequently, one episode is dedicated to his compositions.

Furthermore, some works by lesser-known composers of which few recordings could be found.

In this episode fragments from:
Karlheinz Stockhausen – Helikopter Quartett
Daron Hagen (photo) – After words/ Songs of experience
