Program Notes: Danse Macabre: Variations on “Dies Irae” is one of eight pieces for solo piano composed in 2019 by James Domine. The music creates a supernatural musical atmosphere surrounding the medieval chant that intones the Day of Judgment. Beginning with the image of a haunted piano played by ghostly apparitions, using ancient and contemporary art, the video conjures interpretative impressions that combine to form a surreal visual landscape that follows a kaleidoscopic narrative as the music unfolds. www.jamesdomine.com Copyright © 2020 - All Rights Reserved.
