Info

Rachmaninov composed the symphonic poem 'The Isle of the Dead' (Die Toteninsel) op. 29 in 1908 in Dresden, inspired by a black and white print of the eponymous painting by Arnold Böcklin that he has seen in 1907 in Paris.
Rachmaninov describes Charon rowing his boat over Styx to lay the dead to rest on the island. Death is omnipresent through the recurring 'Dies Irae' motif.
