Sublime Sorcery: Music and the Supernatural

The supernatural played a starring role in the music of the Romantic Movement. The suggestive power of music, its capacity to stimulate the imagination, and its grip on the subconscious made it an ideal medium for expressing the mysterious turns of the human psyche.

This production features haunting instrumental and vocal works by Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Liszt and Saint-Saëns. All these works were inspired by supernatural phenomena and the human perception of the otherworld. The music is accompanied by narration from the writings of E.T.A. Hoffmann.
