DanŠe, a princess of Argos in the Greek Peloponessos, was locked away in a bronze tower when her father, King Akrisios, learned a prophecy that he was destined to be killed by a son of his own daughter. Her prison, however, was infiltrated by the god Zeus who appeared to her in the guise of a shower of gold and impregnated her. When Danae's son Perseus was born, Acrisius cast them in a wooden chest and set them afloat at Aegean sea, to the providence of gods.

The legend of DanŠe has been an inspiration to many great artists throughout the centuries, the most famous example being the painting by Rembrandt Van Rijn (1606-1669). Rembrandt captured the moment when DanŠe is saying farewell to Zeus. The golden glow diffuses throughout the chamber and envelopes DanŠe's nude silhouette. Her sparkling eyes, smile and hand gesture express a myriad of emotions. Rembrandt also adds a dramatic element to the scene, by depicting a mournful Cupid in the headrest, with his hands bound in front of him. His body is illuminated by the golden glow, which fades away in his wings.

Rembrandt's painting, and the legend behind it, has served as inspiration for this musical composition, which narrates the legend through the elaborate counterpoint of three main motifs: the theme of the Aegean Sea, the song of DanŠe, and the theme of Zeus. The modal character of the piece, the subtle rhythmic and harmonic modulations and improvisatory elements, along with the deeply felt melodies, colorfully paint the shadows and nuances of the ancient mystery, filled with complex human emotions and passion.
