Glanert - Requiem for Hieronymus Bosch (2017)

Glanert

Royal Concergebouw Orchestra

Markus Stenz

The famed painter Hieronymus Bosch portrayed medieval life brimming with symbolism, fantasy and riddles. Commemorating the five hundredth anniversary of the artist’s death the RCO commissioned Detlev Glanert to write a requiem for soloists, choir, organ and orchestra. The composition translates the demonic nature of Bosch’s paintings with textual counterparts into music. Glanert combines traditional requiem texts with excerpts from the manuscript collection Carmina Burana – each movement of the Requiem is accompanied by a poem about the seven deadly sins.

[...]All too often requiem settings are let down by uneven or indifferent soloists, but this well-matched quartet are firm and fearless from start to finish. (I’d love to hear them in the Verdi.) Glanert holds back in Wrath – after all, the main event is still to come – tenor Gerhard Siegel is both strong and steady at this point. One might expect a pate- and plaster-cracking Dies irae – Berlioz, Verdi and Britten come to mind – but Glanert, perhaps mindful of these mighty antecedents, seems determined to play down the potential vulgarity of these climactic moments. Indeed, good taste, agility and a telling use of vocal/orchestral resources are key to the work’s success. Also, this music defies expectations, the Dies irae longer and more varied than one might expect. [...]
