Summary

Hermann Brochs Trilogie "Die Schlafwandler" zeigt an den drei Figuren Pasenow, Esch und Huguenau - einem preußischen Offizier, einem rheinischen Kleinbürger und einem elsässischen Geschäftsmann - den Wandel der Gesellschaft in der Wilhelminischen Ära.

Dem Hörer stockt der Atem angesichts der frappierenden Parallelen zu unseren Tagen: Wirtschaftskrise, Werteverfall, Kulturwandel - Brochs Werk klingt fast wie ein Kommentar zu den aktuellen Entwicklungen. Mit einer herausragenden, stimmgewaltigen Besetzung und pointiert gesetzter Musik wird in der Inszenierung von Klaus Buhlert die Dramatik jener Umbruchjahre so lebendig, als erlebten wir sie heute.

Well presented. Unfortunately abridged

As a rule I prefer not to listen to abridged forms of classical literature, but even I have to admit that there are parts of this work, especially in the third part, Hugenau, whose curtailment is welcome.

The acting and the production are strong and it is a work which ought to be studied by all wishing to understand the whole panorama of the literature of the German language.

I am pleased that this is available on Audible.
