MARK-ANTHONY TURNAGE Out of Black Dust for brass ensemble
LOUIS ANDRIESSEN Mysteriën

 

Zosha di CastriEsprit takes pleasure being among the first to have a new orchestral work from Di Castri following her appointment as inaugural New Voices composer with the San Francisco Symphony and New World Symphony.

In Mayo’s new work, the combination of Esprit with four singers makes possible a range of sonorities unknown and unpredictable, thus adding to the “mysteries” of the concert.

Turnage’s piece, jazzy, with energetic rhythms and restless meters, is inspired by Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog and uses that song’s wailing, ecstatic, twisted qualities with the same hard-driving blues element loved by British rockers.

Andriesssen’s Mysteriën, written for the 125th Anniversary Concert of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on November 3rd, 2013, profoundly reflects on the human condition, truth, love, death and our place in the cosmos.
