New Work: Love's Filtre
With Love's Filtre I seek to capture the moment prior to Isolde giving Tristan the love potion. Both are unaware of Brangaene's deception and substitution of Love for Death.
Wagner's Tristan und Isolde is one of those defining compositions which changed the course of culture and musical history. It's infamous, unresolved 'Tristan Chord' said to open the way for the direction of Western Music during the Twentieth Century.
You can listen to the music that inspired this image, here at youtube sung by the great Kirsten Flagstad conducted by Wilhelm Furtwangler.
