Detlev Glanert: Requiem for Hieronymus Bosch
23 Jun 2017
Other participants: Markus Stenz, David Wilson-Johnson, Aga Mikolaj, Ursula Hesse von den Steinen, Gerhard Siegel, Christof Fischesser, Leo van Doeselaar, Edward Caswell, Netherlands Radio Choir
The composition translates the demonic nature of Bosch’s paintings with textual counterparts into music. Glanert combines traditional requiem texts with excerpts from the manuscript collection Carmina Burana – each movement of the Requiem is accompanied by a poem about the seven deadly sins.
