Notes and Editorial Reviews
When Stefan Winter first heard Fabio Nieder’s “The Devourer of Images,” he did not know the plot of this opera, which will be premiered in Salzburg in 2015. He was also not aware that the music is but one part of that opera. And Nieder was unknown to him, too. But he made the decision to release the music on Winter & Winter, because Fabio Nieder creates dream sequences that give wings to fantasy. The music, the story, and the sounds seem so thrilling—foreign and at the same time familiar—perhaps because Nieder’s music talks in such an emphatic, beautiful way about love, dreams, loss, death, and life.
