Musik der Zeit 1 (Music of the Time)
WDR Sinfonieorchester conducted by Bas Wiegers - Funkhaus

Program Info:
Surreal dreams.
The invention of the film was a revolution. The reality of art has never been so close. What fascinates filmmakers more than illusion is hallucination. The gap between reality and illusion may only be deeper in music - the speechless voice of the silent film. After all, Mauricio Kagel gives the legendary "Andalusian dog" the long missing bark. José María Sánchez-Verdú inserts a ghost soundtrack into his film music, as scary as the rift that collapses Edgar Allan Poe's "House of Usher" . The only composer who dives into surreal depths without the help of the Beatles is the Dutch composer Mayke Nas.
