Saariaho And Andriessen - Irish Premieres
RTÉ Concert Orchestra | Conducted by Robert Houlihan
Kaiija Saariaho Graal théâtre (Irish premiere) - Violin: Hae Sun Kang of Ensemble Intercontemporain
Louis Andriessen Vermeer Pictures (Irish premiere)
Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity to witness the Irish premieres of two of the greatest composers working in new music today.
"All composers are dreamers. But very few have dared to dream sonic images of such magnetic power as those that Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho has conjured in her music for ensembles, orchestra, opera houses, electronics and soloists."
"Andriessen has called the opera his ‘delicate, feminine daughter’. Like his musical godfather Stravinsky, Andriessen renounces as much as he embraces, and it is this tendency that gives power and focus to his time-travelling journeys between late Renaissance and jazz."
Presented by New Music Dublin with the support of NCH, RTÉ and The Arts Council
