CLASSICAL OPUS no.49

Modest Mussorgsky: “Night on a Bald Mountain”

モデスト・ムソルグスキー「禿げた山の夜」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 14 minutes

This monstrous, apocalyptic, calamitous drama sparkles with contorted, spine-chilling visions.  The delirious opening soon ferments into a backwood mystery which is punctuated by fervent climaxes, but never ultimately resolved.  Il grande Claudio Abbado graces us here with wazoos full of heavy percussion that he seemed to relish over the brass dynamo.

A REFLECTION

The tired choir of stars calms down, yet.

Night goes away with apprehension.

There you descent from far hills in sunset.

I craved for you. To you my spirit’s spread.

You’re my salvation!

 

Aleksandr Blok: “I Seek Salvation”
