Hans Werner Henze

Publisher: Chester Music

…Phaedra shows a strengthened, pugnaciously flashing Henze…someone who definitely still has something to say and who says it. — Manuel Brug, Die Welt


…Much of the score is sumptuously beautiful. Densely harmonized and orchestrated, its style owes much to Berg, yet stops short of atonality to wallow in a dreamy romanticism. Henze’s compositional craft is everywhere evident. — Rupert Christiansen, Daily Telegraph
