Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometimes voices,
[That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that,] when I waked,
I cried to dream again.
Caliban, The Tempest, Act III, Scene II
Solo: Dietrich Henschel baritone
Orchestra: Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
Choral: Rundfunkchor Berlin
Conductor: Kent Nagano
