The Passionate Quest (CD)
"The Heroic Quest"
The Passionate Quest (for glass armonica and chamber orchestra) is based on the earliest complete surviving Grail story, written by Eschenbach around 1100 AD—himself an impoverished itinerant knight. In this account of the Grail legend, Percival, the hero, begins as a naive young man who wants to be a knight; he passes through various mythic trials and tribulations, and ultimately is crowned the new Grail King.
Eschenbach wisely never identifies the nature of the Grail (equating the Grail to the cup of Jesus' Last Supper was centuries later). That leaves it up to us—what is the Grail for you? What are you seeking?
