In 1913, when he was only eighteen years old, Carl Orff finished his first opera, Gisei. This tragic story, featuring the sacrificial death of a child as well as Japanese culture in general, so greatly inspired the young composer that throughout his life he remained fond of Japan. In Japanese tragedy he found numerous similarities to the ancient Greek tragedies of Sophocles, with which he constantly engaged himself intensively.

Who built the Giza Pyramids, and why? It’s an age-old question. Many have puzzled and theorised over the problem. The Egyptians make the claim to fame, but their own history clouds that assumption. The Jews claim an Exodus from that land, but their sacred books never once mention the pyramids by name, and Egypt has no record of the Jews.

The works that make up this adventurous release are all, to quote Shakespeare, "such stuff as dreams are made on". In various ways these recordings refer to night and dreams, to the distant past or to an uncertain future. With composers from Denmark, Norway, Finland, Germany and Greece, and texts ranging from fragments of ancient Assyrian and Sumerian and 8th-century Wessobrunner Prayer to many other places, the concept of "here and now" become blurred and dreamlike.
