The Music of My Country – Portuguese Conductor Álvaro Cassuto Talks with Jeremy Siepmann

Art and Music: Goya - Music of His Time

ART AND MUSIC
GOYA – Music of His Time

Music by Rameau, D. Scarlatti, Gossec, Mozart, Boccherini, Beethoven, Paganini, Rossini
Author: Hugh Griffith
1 CD with 24 page colour booklet
Cat. no.: 8.558178

The artistic genius of Goya (1746-1828) was multifaceted and complex. Chief painter at the Spanish court, a master of the official portrait, he also gave expression to a dark vision of the world, in which phantoms leer and threaten, witches eat babies and the horrors of war are rampant. On this CD, the world of Goya is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. Inside, Hugh Griffith provides explanatory notes on his life and musical environment.
