The new limited edition, DANTE, includes the first recording of Thomas Adès's score for the ballet and a photogravure by Dean, presented in a custom-made box. The double LP vinyl record set, released by Nonesuch Records and designed by Martyn Ridgewell, features artwork by Tacita Dean. The original musical score—referred to as “an orchestral spectacular in this splendid recording” in The Financial Times, and considered “a dizzying homage to Liszt, synagogue music and the enchantingly upward infinity of the cosmos” by The New York Times—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel. Dean's photogravure, printed by Borch Editions (Copenhagen) is made in the form of a 12-inch vinyl, shows a mountainous spiral drawn in negative, echoing the cold, upside-down, monumental mountains created for the backdrop of the first act of the ballet, Inferno.
