The legends surrounding Saint Catherine of Alexandria, also known as the Great Martyr Saint Catherine, were the source of inspiration for this work. It depicts events surrounding her life in five musical episodes. The first episode presents the Emperor's procession and theme. All is well until a heathen sacrificial ritual is heard in the second movement. After the sacrifice, Catherine and her lyrical, reflective theme make an appearance. A dispute breaks out between Catherine and the Emperor, which can be heard in the heated exchange between their respective themes. Catherine is sentenced to die by the breaking wheel. The voices of angels can be heard in the finale, asCatherine ascends to heaven.

Die heilige Katharina von Alexandrien war die Inspirationsquelle fur dieses Werk, das in funf musikalischen Episoden das Leben der Martyrerin nachzeichnet: Zu Beginn halt der Kaiser mit einem feierlichen Thema Einzug, bevor im zweiten Satz ein wildes heidnisches Opferfest beginnt. Im dritten Satz erscheint das Katharina-Thema mit einer besinnlichen, lyrischen Melodie. Es folgt ein Streit zwischen Katharina und dem Kaiser, der sich in einem hitzigen Wechselspiel beider Themen ausdruckt. Zur Strafe soll sie auf ein gespicktes Rad gebunden werden, dann wird sie fur ihren Glauben hingerichtet. Im letzen Satz geht sie von Engelsgesang begleitet in den Himmel ein.

Un brano in cinque movimenti che trae spunto dalla vita di Caterina d'Alessandria. L'imperatore Massimino si trovava ad Alessandria per festeggiare una ricorrenza pagana dove venivano offerti sacrifici umani. Caterina senti la necessita impellente di appellarsi all'imperatore per chiedere clemenza. Inizio una disputa tra l'imperatore e la giovane donna e Massimino ordino la condanna a morte di tutti i retori e dopo l'ennesimo rifiuto di Caterina la condanno a morire anch'essa su una ruota dentata. Lo strumento di tortura si ruppe e Massimino fece decapitare la santa. Secondo una leggenda, il suo corpo fu trasportato dagli angeli sul monte Sinai.
