Product Description

Rudi Stephan (1887 - 1915) DIE ERSTEN MENSCHEN (~ THE FIRST BEINGS) Erotisches Mysterium in zwei Aufzügen (Erotic mystery play in two acts) Text von Otto Borngräber (Libretto by O. B.) Neufassung von Karl Holl (Revised [= censored] version by K. H.)

Adahm: Otto von Rohr Chawa: Erna Schlüter Kajin: Ferdinand Frantz Chabel: Franz Fehringer

Radio-Sinfonie- Orchester Frankfurt

Dirigent (Conductor): Winfried Zillig

A recording of the HR (Hessischer Rundfunk = Hessian Broadcast Company) ~ 1952

DIE ERSTEN MENSCHEN is based on a play of the same title by infamous poet Otto Borngräber. Kain kills his brother Abel because his mother Eve seems to be physically more attracted by Abel than by himself. Kain, the worker, feels himself inferior to Abel, the visionaire and prophet of a new religion. That was the stuff for scandals - so Stephan's friend Karl Holl revised the opera after the composer's early death in WW I in order to make performances even possible. Nowadays the original version is played (when it is played), e. g. in the two commercial recordings of the opera. So just enjoy this one.
