4. radiOM.org - San Francisco Chamber Music Society A Performance of “El Cimarrón”, April 19, 1982 [6.223% Popularity: 0.00000]
San Francisco Chamber Music Society: A Performance of “El Cimarrón”, April 19, 1982 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 87 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA The final concert of the 1981-82 season of the San Francisco Chamber Music Society featured Hans Werner Henze’s “El Cimarrón,” a recital for four musicians.

An African harp introduces El Cimarrón’s life on the sugar plantation, Flor de Sagua, and his white exploiters, with the torments of slavery depicted in exaggerated music. After hitting the overseer in the mouth, Esteban takes fl...
