sample the album:
"The story of Narcissus and Echo, as told by Ovid, demands music of uncharacteristic directness. It is about the call which waits for resonance, for instance, but also about the life-giving principle of mutation, of constant, startling change. And of course it is about eroticism in all its forms.
A genuinely theatrical music is being played out here: the stylistic uniformity is of less interest than the colouration. Or, to put it better; the music gains its unique character through diversity and contradiction. And the text, stringently orientated toward music, acquires a theatrical presence. Manuel Perovic's precisely coloured orchestration and the exquisite performances of all involved created a seductive, erotic atmosphere and contribute to the game of stimulating, astonishing dramatically tension Ð here too a surprising range of stops are pulled out."-Intakt
