“In the ‘Requiem for a Young Poet‘, his late masterpiece, Zimmermann sums up not only his own biography but also the spiritual situation of his (life-)time, the half century between the October revolution and the march of the Warsaw Pact troops into Czechoslovakia. The Requiem is the most comprehensive realization of the large oratorio project which occupied Zimmermann from the mid-fifties on. This CD was awarded the ‘Choc Musique’-Award.”
