Jan-Peter de Graaff: World premiere ‘Les cymbales sonores’

Geplaatst op

Composer Jan-Peter de Graaff wrote a large work, Event-Horizon, for the opening of the 20/21 season. This work has been postponed to next season due to the Covid-Pandemic, as it is impossible to host 160 musicians on a stage at the moment. However, the AVROTROS & Stichting Omroep Muziek decided to commission him for a brand-new work for the opening of their 20/21 season…   

In the past few weeks, Jan-Peter de Graaff has been working on “Les cymbales sonores”, for chamber orchestra and chamber choir which will be premiered in September as part of the 75th anniversaries of the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest & Groot Omroepkoor conducted by Karina Canellakis.

Ticket sales will start on August 24th, with performances planned in Utrecht (September 11th) and Amsterdam (September 13th).
