The August 6, 1966, premiere of Hans Werner Henze's opera Die Bassariden at the Salzburg Festival has, over time, become regarded as a justly famous event. It isn't often that you can travel back in time and take a front row seat for such a show, but in the case of Orfeo's first-time release of the recording of this event, you can. This production also proved an early triumph for its 36-year-old conductor, Christoph von Dohnányi. Die Bassariden is nowhere near as difficult a listen now as it may have been in 1966. While there are occasional dramatic stings that go a little over.

Die Bassariden" is nowhere near as difficult a listen now as it may have been in 1966. While there are occasional dramatic stings that go a little over the top, most of it is no more difficult than average current-day movie music.

Hans Werner Henze (1 July 1926 – 27 October 2012) was a German composer. His large oeuvre of works is extremely varied in style, having been influenced by serialism, atonality, Stravinsky, Italian music, Arabic music and jazz, as well as traditional schools of German composition. In particular, his stage works reflect "his consistent cultivation of music for the theatre throughout his life".

Die Bassariden - which became The Bassarids when the English National Opera staged it eight years after its Salzburg premiere in 1966 - was Hans Werner Henze's second operatic collaboration with WH Auden and Chester Kallman. Their libretto was based upon Euripides's The Bacchae and, with the exception of the rarely heard original version of King Stag composed a decade earlier, it is the grandest, most massive of Henze's stage works.
