Jan-Peter de Graaff: Het Gouden Kalf
Jan-Peter de Graaff is currently one of the most successful young Dutch composers. His compositions convince with subtle timbres, unexpected harmonies and intense narrative power. Accessible music filled with deeply human drama.
De Graaff and librettist Jibbe Willems are now exploring the world of the Biblical Exodus. Their oratorium The Golden Calf is inspired by the epic exodus of a people in search of a new future. Timeless matter that is powerfully reflected in our time. Studium Chorale and the South Netherlands Philharmonic will give this current music drama its world premiere during the Musica Sacra Maastricht festival.
The composition assignment for Oratorium was given at the initiative of the South Netherlands Philharmonic in collaboration with Musica Sacra and Studium Chorale, partly on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Studium Chorale.
