One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance, Kurt Joossí ballet expresses the futile, relentless tragedy of war.
The flashing white gloves of the diplomats around the green table and Deathís inexorable stamping as he gathers in his victims make an unforgettably powerful impact.
This studio recording with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago was staged by the choreographerís daughter, Anna Markard, who reconstructed his work as faithfully as possible.
Frederic Cohenís score for two pianos is played by May Sofge and Fiona Boznos.
Composed by: Kurt Joos
