Author: Hugh Griffith

Sumptuous but somehow unsettling, the works of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) constitute a unique fusion of painting with the decorative arts. Studded with glittering ornamentation and jewel-like motifs, his portrayals of embracing figures and elegant women in their finery are among the most spell-binding images in the history of art. On this CD, the world of Klimt 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.
