The Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, conducted by James Gaffigan, will perform Willem Jeths’ Requiem on March 11 at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. The piece was commissioned by and will be performed during the NTR ZaterdagMatinee series.

The first part of the great Requiem from Jeths was already premiered in the 2015-2016 season. The completed work can now be heard in its entirety, touching and infused with deep emotion, like all music Jeths has been writing in recent years. He has been rather fascinated with grace and elegance, and his attention has increasingly moved into the final and insoluble mystery that engages the human being: what is on the other side of the dividing line between life and death? Fear and silence embrace each other in this grandiose requiem.
