The Great God Pan

by Ross Crean

Matthan joins a talented cast of Chicago musicians as Doctor Raymond in the international recording of Ross Crean's supernatural thriller: The Great God Pan on the Navona/Parma Label.

The opera takes its story from an eponymous 1890 novella by Welsh author Arthur Machen, which explores themes of scientific hubris, transcendental medicine, and unexplainable supernatural behavior. Impressively, Crean adapted Machen’s narrative into the work’s libretto himself, an ambitious and rare undertaking for a composer. Crean’s familiarity with the story shows through in the emotional resonance of his music, which matches and communicates the character’s concerns and feelings with unflinching precision.  For more information visit Navona Records.

The Great God Pan is available on iTunes and Amazon.
