SCHMIDT Das Buch mit Sieben Siegeln (The Book with Seven Seals)

Fabio Luisi leads the late-Romantic composer’s magnum opus, a towering oratorio that tackles no less a subject than the Bible’s Book of Revelation — the Apocalypse — a prophetic vision of the final violent destruction of the world. The DSO, soloists, massive chorus, and organ solos on the Lay Family Concert Organ depict the breaking of the seals, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the seven trumpets summoning souls to the Last Judgment, and, finally, the message of salvation and an ecstatic “Hallelujah.” Monumental, riveting, unforgettable! With English supertitles.
