A majestic and dramatic oratorio by the father of Estonian classical
music, Rudolf Tobias (1873-1918). The libretto, assembled by Tobias
himself, ingeniously unites texts from the Book of Jonah with verses
from a wide range of scriptural sources. Thanks to the brilliant
efforts of the pianist and musicologist Vardo Rumessen, a restored
version of Jonah’s Mission (Des Jona Sendung) was
given its premiere in 1989. This live 2008 performance by the Estonian
national Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of the world-renown
Estonian conductor Neeme Järvi. Sung in German; subtitles in
English, German, and Estonian.
126 minutes, color, stereo, 16:9 Widescreen, All regions.
