Programme Notes:

The Garden of Earthly Delights was commissioned by Timothy Steeves and Nancy Dahn of Duo Concertante for the Ecology of Being project and was first performed on August 10th, 2020 at the Tuckamore Music Festival. This work is the first in a cycle of works based on paintings of Hieronymous Bosch. The Garden of Earthly Delights is a reflection on the cycle of life and death in the natural world. The work’s formal structure parallels that of the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead. – Ian Cusson
