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.

Recorded live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 5 November 2016
