Elliot Goldenthal’s ‘Othello Symphony’ will be released on May 6th. Available for preorder on Amazon and iTunes today!
Othello Symphony is a symphonic reworking of Goldenthal’s ballet, Othello, which he composed in 1998. This seven movement symphony was born from Goldenthal’s desire to bring the piece to the stage as a symphonic work – not intended to follow a specific narrative, but to present it in a non-programmatic way. At 34 minutes, Goldenthal’s Othello Symphony can now finally be heard in this additional context, the concert hall, as the great modern symphonic masterwork it is.
