Al gran sole carico d’amore is the culmination of the overtly political phase in Nono’s output‚ begun with his previous ‘scenic action’ Intolleranza 1960 (Teldec‚ 10/95).

Written for La Scala‚ but premièred at Milan’s Teatro Lirico in 1975‚ it reflects the polarity between political left and right which was still a defining issue‚ as was the concept of revolution leading inevitably to the future.

In fact‚ Al gran sole conveys the essence of revolution rather than depicting it historically‚ or as a linear sequence of events. Part 1 relates events leading to the collapse of the Paris Commune in May 1871 through a montage of writings‚ notably the memoirs of participant Louise Michel. Part 2 takes the 1905 uprising in Russia as its basis‚ over which are laid allusions to post­war political events. All of these were failures‚ while all aspiring to wider social and political change. Yet how to interpret them from the ‘present’ is not specified by Nono‚ resulting in a musical and dramatic experience designed to provoke as much as compel.

Musically Al gran sole takes the visceral impact of Nono’s earlier work to its limits. The mesh of individual and collective voices‚ the concentration on female vocals at extremes of register (the ‘forgotten’ role of women in revolutionary activity is central to the dramaturgy)‚ the fractured allusions to revolutionary songs‚ the massive 12­note chords that punctuate more lyrical reflections in Part 2 – all ensure active and unsettling listening. Yet the ethereal vocal and orchestral polyphony which sets the increasingly fragmented representation of events in relief is something new to Nono’s musical thinking; a clear pointer to the calm‚ inward intensity of his late work – ‘change’ as a state of mind rather than an act of becoming.

There can be little but praise for Lothar Zagrosek’s marshalling of the diverse forces required‚ or his projection of the complex musical tissue with such unfailing immediacy. Claudia Barainsky delivers her exacting ‘everywoman’ role with conviction; a telling contrast to the male voices‚ whose cameos of reactionaries and revolutionaries emerge at focal points in the drama. The live recording gets a believable spatial perspective without lessening dramatic focus. There are absorbing accompanying essays‚ but the multilingual libretto comes with no English translation – regrettable in a work where communication is enhanced by prior knowledge of the texts involved.
