Igor Wakhevitch - Étre Dieu

In 1927, renowkned painter Salvador Dali began writing the libretto for a poem-opera, Étre Dieu ("To Be God"). The opera stars the humble Dali himself in the titular role. The opera was not completed until 1974, when Dali hired Igor Wakhevitch to write the music. It was not actually performed until 2004, and then with different musical accompaniment which has never been recorded. The Dali/Wakhevitch recording was released on 3 CDs in 1992 and is very rare.

Lol, White Noise posted Étre Dieu two days after I did. His is divided into three ZIP files and I don't know the quality.

Sorry knowby, didn't realize you'd posted it already, strange coincidence though. My copy's at 192, not sure what the quality of yours is..Can't believe we posted the same obscure Dali-Wakhevitch 6 part opera, will have to start checking out all the good blogs before I post! :-)

It's cool, woj2322. It pretty much "made my day" that we would post the same extremely obscure piece of music within a two days of each other. Keep up the great work; I love your blog!
