The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra stages the piece in front of the audience’s very eyes, as the musicians themselves depict Rodin’s various characters to flowing music by Messiaen, Beethoven and Shostakovich. One of the poems performed was written by British poet Wilfred Owen, who died in battle in 1918. The message is as gripping and urgent today as
it was then.
