      Dallapiccola‘s timbres lead us through the darknesses of the human soul, allowing us to hope together with the prisoner, for we hear with him the saving word „fratello“ (brother). At the moment of the greatest fulfilment of hope, he is seized by the arms of the Grand Inquisitor and must acknowledge that hope was the worst torture of all.
      The performance series in Graz in March 2017, from which the present recording is taken, was praised in the highest terms by the musical press.

      Libretto in Italian and German in the booklet.
