RACHMANINOFF: Isle of the Dead

A Beyond The Score® multi-media concert presentation!

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s most famous tone poem, based on a popular painting by symbolist Swiss artist Arnold Böcklin, is the subject of this season’s first multi-media Beyond the Score® exploration. The eerie 5/8 time signature, Russian soulfulness and the Western “Dies irae” chant are blended for a spellbinding visit to “the undiscovered country” between life and death. Using narrator and actor, the story of how Rachmaninoff came to write this striking work will surprise you.
