Product Description

CD89283 Toshio Hosokawa new opera Matsukaze (internet stream)

Since Musiq3 has no satellite transmission it's impossible for people outside the terrestrial signal's footprint, one has no other choice than to grab the internet stream.

This is the 5 May 2011 performance of Toshio Hosokawa's new opera Matsukaze, at Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, Brussels, which commissioned it. It was broadcast yesterday Sunday 15 May 2011 by Belgian radio channel Musiq3. The next paragraph describing the action was taken from la Monnaie's website.

Two sisters, Matsukaze and Murasame, are smitten with a noble exile. Years later, after their death, their souls continue to wander and lust after him. Matsukaze dances like a lunatic, wearing the hat and coat of her lover, and believes that she recognises him in the silhouette of a pine tree. Following Hanjo in 2004, Toshio Hosokawa returns once again to the tradition of nô theatre for his new opera. The same intimist approach and dreamlike atmosphere set the tone for this new composition in which Hosokawa stages four characters and a small chorus, accompanied by approximately fifteen musicians. As with Hanjo staged by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, La Monnaie has confided another talented choreographer, Sasha Waltz, with the staging of this world premiere. She is returning to La Monnaie after the productions of Purcell's Dido & Aeneas and Dusapin's Médée presented during the last seasons.

Apart from Canadian singer Barbara Hannigan and Norwegian Frode Olsen, I was unable to grasp the names of the other performers. Here's the link to Matsukaze's webpage at la Monnaie:
