Recorded live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam, 5 November 2016.

The famed painter Hieronymus Bosch portrayed medieval life brimming with symbolism, fantasy and riddles. Commemorating the 500th anniversary of the artist’s passing, the RCO commissioned Detlev Glanert to write a requiem for soloists, choir, organ and orchestra. 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.

****

“The performance under Stenz has tremendous dramatic intensity, with David Wilson-Johnson as the speaker setting the tone at the start with his terrifying summons to the artist. There is also immense choral singing, with soprano Aga Mikolaj steepling thrillingly over the top of it, and immaculate playing by the RCO.”
