About this audiobook

hr2 Hörbuch-Bestenliste März ’99: In dieser Novelle beschreibt Georg Büchner „ein Stück aus dem Leben des an Schizophrenie leidenden Sturm-und-Drang-Dichters J.M.R.Lenz. (…) Der Schauspieler Roland Astor versteht es sehr gut, mit seiner schlichten und unauffälligen Betonung die innere Kraft dieses Fragments zum Leuchten zu bringen.(…) Ein echter Klassiker.“

Hörwelt 4/99: „…hier kann der Sprecher Roland Astor seine hervorragenden Qualitäten entwickeln. Die Stimme umfasst jedes Wort, kostet die Betonung der detailreichen, farbigen Sprache schon in der Vorstufe der szenischen Bravourstücke aus … steigert sich in eine Sprache, die der fieberhaften Phantasie des gepeinigten Lenz entsprungen scheint.“

~ from the Hr2 audiobook charts March 1999: In this novel Georg Büchner describes “part of the life of the schizophrenic Sturm und Drang poet, Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz... Actor Roland Astor knows how to make the inner strength of this production truly shine with his unpretentious and reserved accentuation...A true classic.”
~ from Hörwelt April 1999: “… Narrator Roland Astor is able to develop his outstanding talents with this recording. His voice embraces every word, savors the accentuation of the detailed, colorful language even before the scenic masterworks that follow…intensifies into speech that seems to stem from the feverish fantasy of the plagued Lenz.”

Georg Büchner

Karl Georg Büchner (17 October 1813 – 19 February 1837) was a German dramatist and writer of poetry and prose. He was also a revolutionary, a natural scientist, and the brother of physician and philosopher Ludwig Büchner. He was a major forerunner of the Expressionist school of playwriting of the early 20th century and his work voiced the disillusionment of many artists and intellectuals after World War I. He is now recognised as one of the outstanding figures in German dramatic literature and it is widely believed that, had it not been for his early death, he might have joined such central German literary figures as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller at the summit of their profession. His works include Woyzeck, left incomplete at the time of this death; his first play, Danton's Death, and the comedy Leonce and Lena.
