Album Summary

>Rose, Gregory [Conductor] : Danse macabre, for chorus & chamber orchestra
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Danse macabre - the idea that Death comes for everyone regardless of status or importance - has fascinated musicians for centuries. In 2011, inspired by a vast 16th c. painting by Bernt Notke in St Nicholas Church in Tallinn, the English composer Gregory Rose (b. 1948) set the mediaeval German texts which sit below each panel, turning Notke's terrifying vision into a bleak but grimly humorous ritual. The recording features the world-renowned Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. It was recorded in the very church that houses Notke's paintings and is conducted by the composer.
