PSYCHE

pen and watercolour on paper
1998 - 210 x 260 mm

Psyche in the gardens of Eros. Influenced by Charles Van Lerberghe's incredibly beautiful cycle of poems 'La Chanson d'Eve' and César Franck's tone poem Psyché. If you, like me, enjoy late Romantic music with a touch of Academic imagery (Leighton's Flaming June) then I suggest you add this work to your CD collection. If you haven't got it already that is. The full version of this masterwork is hard to find, but the Chandos recording by Taadaki Otaka and the BBC Welsh Orchestra and Chorus is nothing short of sublime.
