A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are one (1) hoour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

mit Chris Tina Tengel.
Spielarten deutscher "Zeitgenossenschaft": Schillings - Schreker - Klose - Pfitzner

Die rege deutsche Opernproduktion von etwa 1900 bis in die 1920er Jahre - ein trüber Sumpf unausgegorener Wagnerei? Das kann nur glauben, wer an der Oberfläche bleibt. Wer tiefer gräbt, stößt bald auf die lichtdurchflutete "Rose vom Liebesgarten", von Hans Pfitzner und Jugendstil-infiziert - seit wenigen Monaten erstmals in ungekürzter Gesamtaufnahme greifbar!

Zu Humperdinck und Siegfried Wagner gesellte sich kurz als Märchenopernschreiber der Bruckner-Schüler Friedrich Klose, dessen "Ilsebill" in alten Opernführern als Meisterwerk geführt wird - zu Unrecht? Der politisch problematische Max von Schillings huldigt in "Mona Lisa" effektvoll der Renaissancemode und ist mindestens so sehr "deutscher Verist" wie Eugen d'Albert.

Dazu noch das fiebrige Leib- und Seelentheater, das Franz Schreker in seinen unnachgeahmt gebliebenen "Gezeichneten" aufrührt, mit Blick auf Sigmund Freuds Couch: Auch wenn das Wenigste davon im musikalischen Alltag noch eine Rolle spielt.
