Show Full Description

The inevitable phenomenon of life’s end has produced a wealth of the world’s great masterpieces of art. From Michelangelo’s Last Judgment in the Sistine Chapel, to Miller’s Death of a Salesman, immortal works have bridged the gap between reality and final unknown. Schubert’s obsession with death emerges throughout his music, and the Russians Mussorgsky and Rachmaninov give voice to their country’s powerful grasp of human mortality.
