CLASSICAL OPUS no.28

Camille Saint-Saëns: “Danse macabre”

カミーユサン=サーンス: 「死のダンス」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 7 minutes

A circular, robotic waltz grinds forward with unobtrusively hoarse, fine-grained violas juxtaposed against an ecstatically soaring theme.  It was transcribed by Liszt for piano, but the nightmarish tonal range of the orchestral version conjures up more potent, Draculean, lugubrious visions.

A REFLECTION

I missed his funeral,

Those quiet walkers

And sideways talkers

Shoaling out of his lane

To the respectable

Purring of the hearse…
