Catalogue Number: 08T074
Label: Sheva Collection
Reference: SH 136
Description: Volume 5 takes its impetus from Caravaggio's Passiontide paintings, which notably do not include an actual crucifixion scene. Seabourne does not depict specific imagery or events, but rather suggests the sense of dread, mourning and suffering that precedes any anticipated act of horrific violence. Accordingly, the works in this volume are darker than those in the accompanying Vol. 4, with ominous tolling laments, relentless mechanistic pursuit and outbursts of frankly expressed, dissonant catastrophe. Alessandro Viale (piano).
