AsraŽl (Angel of Death) is a unique reflection upon death, where sadness, anger, resignation and the overcoming of pain form an extraordinary storyline, a combination of intimacy and remarkable fullness of sound.
Rarely recorded, the work that completes this programme will be of interest to all fans of Czech music and of works inspired by the war: Legend of the Dead Victors is Suk's tribute to the Czech soldiers who died during World War I, an extraordinary short piece suggesting another vision of how to overcome death.
Walter Weller is regularly invited as guest conductor throughout the world and has held a number of prestigious titles with orchestras including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Royal Liverpool and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. Since the 2007/08 season, he has held the post of Music Director to the National Orchestra of Belgium. In Scotland, Walter Weller has the special distinction of being pictured on the £50-note!
