Hommage à Jean-Paul Sartre et Simone de Beauvoir. A chamber opera about love based on texts by Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre - that's what René Wohlhauser wanted to compose in the spring of 2014. When Sartre's estate categorically refused permission for the texts to be used, Wohlhauser refused to abandon the project. He replaced Sartre's words with his own sound poetry and stated a concertante version of the work with Ensemble Polysono during it's 2015 and 2016 European tours. This CD documents this production in the form of a studio recording. René Wohlhauser is a composer, singer, pianist, and conductor. After some years' experience as a rock and jazz musician, he now composes primarily contemporary classical music. He tours regularly throughout Europe with Ensemble Polysono and the Simolka-Wohlhauser duo.
