Opera in the 20th century

tue 22 sep 2020 17:00 

The history of twentieth (and twenty-first) century opera. 2013A.

Beautiful works, a lot of variation, and also new names from all continents. But, only a limited number of recordings. Today, operas from Russia and the US: two different continents, different composers and traditions, and two rather divergent operas.

In this episode fragments from:

  • Rodion Shchedrin- The left-handed
  • D J Sparr ( picture )- Approaching Ali
