The plot of Danse Macabre is of the simplest. The scene is a graveyard at night ; the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and dance wildly to Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.
Conducted by GEORGE GARAY (Cymbalom solo played by ELEK RACZ)(Violin solo played by GEORGE GARAY)
