The timeless theme of death and transience has inspired composers throughout history. A narrator guides us through music ranging from Haydn and Verdi to Wagner, Mussorgsky, and Popper. Belgian composer Peeters completes the program with a suite written specifically for the trombone quartet. From hopeful and celestial to dark and ominous, this intimate thematic concert is a poignant reflection on the flow of time.
