Rotterdam, The Netherlands—Become Desert (European Premiere)

April 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

€10 – €65

Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra
conductor Kevin John Edusei
choir Nederlands Kamerkoor

PROGRAM:

Wagemans Love, baby love (world première)
Britten Four Sea Interludes & Passacaglia
J.L. Adams Become Desert (European première)

The biggest contemporary music hit of recent years – winning a Pulitzer Prize – was Become Ocean by the American John Luther Adams. The equally hypnotic follow-up Become Desert, commissioned partially by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, swaps the surging ocean for the blinding desert light. The orchestra also plays the world première of a piece by Jan-Peter Wagemans.

Neil Wallace chats with Peter-Jan Wagemans and some of the musicians at 19.15.
