Call up music file, then reduce to icon, and recall this file to have them be simultaneous. Rachmaninoff uses the sound of the oars of  Charon's boat on the waters for his symphonic poem, the 'Isle of the Dead', Opus 29

ARNOLD BÖCKLIN (1827-1901)


THE ISLAND OF THE DEAD


Florence's Swiss-owned so-called 'English' Cemetery is the Swiss painter Arnold Böcklin's 'Island of the Dead', for he buried his infant daughter, Maria Anna, here (
§142. Böcklin/+/ Maria Anna/ Arnoldo/ Svizzera/ Firenze/ 20 Marzo/ 1877/ Mesi 7/ 1387), and then obsessively painted this scene five times, of which we show the four extant versions. It is also a composite, recalling other Italian island such as Venice's cemetery on the island of San Michele to which bodies are brought by gondola. (Search on the web also for 'Arnold Boecklin', and for 'Toteninsel' or 'Isola dei morti'.) At the time of Maria B
öcklin's burial, the medieval wall had already been razed by Poggi and the present oval island built. Arnold Böcklin is himself buried in the Allori Cemetery near Galluzzo. Serge Rachmaninoff composed his symphony on this painting.
