Suk: Asrael Symphony; Legend of the Dead Victors – National Orchestra of Belgium, Walter Weller

Josef Suk’s Symphony Asrael, written a century ago by a man crucified by pain, is slowly finding its way into the limelight. Walter Weller, with the National Orchestra of Belgium, leads us to an intimate understanding of this work, written after the death of Suk’s father-in-law, the composer DvoÅ™ák, as well as in the shadow caused by the death of Suk’s young wife, Otilie. Asrael (the Angel of Death) is a unique reflection upon death, where sadness, anger, resignation, and the overcoming of pain form an extraordinary storyline, imbued with both intimacy and a remarkable richness of emotion. The complementary work on this download, Legend of the Dead Victors, is Suk’s tribute to the Czech soldiers who died during World War I: an extraordinary piece suggesting another vision of how one might come to terms with death.
