Program Notes

German poet Burger’s dramatic story of a nobleman who chose to indulge in hunting rather than attend to his religious obligations provided the inspiration for Cesar Franck’s tone poem Le Chasseur Maudit (The Cursed Hunter). In it we hear the interplay of hunting calls and the church themes, and the beginning of the hunt. A sudden dramatic stop brings the curse with its dire sentencing, followed by the fiery chase into eternity.
