    no clips uploaded anywhere, but
    Hermann Nitsch - "The Egyptian" Symphony

    read a collection of his thoughts and beliefs on music (not pertaining to this release exactly, just in general, it is channeled like this)
    in terms of human history, the scream precedes the word, it occurs whenever excitation is so intense that the word is not enough...
    it digs deeper into the abysses of the drama’s catastrophe.
    subsequently my acoustic composition has moved beyond the extreme archaic possibilities of expression, which i would nevertheless leave entirely...

    an orgiastic music is to transpose us to an intensive state wherein we find being. an orgiastic music is to transpose us to an intensive state wherein we find being. the sensory intensive impressions brought about the orgiastic disembowelment actions of the o.m. theatre, the experience of blood, flesh and intenstines, seen, smelt and tasted, is to escalate into roaring, belling sounds.
    just as intrinsic to my music is the meditative calm of the adagio. the tranquility of the starry sky, the serene orbits of the heavenly bodies are to be savored and the universe losing itself in the infinite is to be sounded out. the music of this gesamtkunstwerk is the life-affirming mysticism of being.

    One of the Bohemian composer's best. An oratorio by Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745), Under the olive tree of peace and the palm tree of virtue the Crown of Bohemia splendidly shines before the whole world, (1723). Played by a large Baroque instruments orchestra made up of 34 string players plus wind.

    This most excellent concert performance from the Salle Pleyel of Grieg's incidental music to Peer Gynt, brilliantly conducted by Paavo Järvo with Swedish mezzo Ann Hallenberg as Anitra and up-and-coming Norwegian soprano Mari Eriksmoen as Solveig. Despite the weirdness of some of it being in French, it's really great.

    The Peer Gynt starts at around 45 minutes.
