Robert Schumann’s only oratorio is based on an oriental legend: the Peri, a fallen angelic being, seeks the way back to heavenly paradise. Only those who bring »heaven’s favourite gift« will open the door to heaven. The Peri travels around the world searching until she finally finds the right gift and »Eden’s gate« opens for her again. Robert Schumann learnt about the story of the fallen angel from the Irish poet Thomas Moore, who put this »oriental romance« into verse. It inspired him to write one of his most beautiful and important works, a »new genre for the concert hall, an oratorio, but not for the prayer hall – but for cheerful people«.
