parallel world [breathing] (2017), Concertgebouw

Very happy with the performance of my new composition parallel world [breathing] for flute, clarinet, percussion, two harps, violin, viola, cello, and electronic sounds (2017) at Koninklijk Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, yesterday. The concert was part of the Entrée Late Night. The soloists of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, who performed the work, were Emily Beynon (flute), Hein Wiedijk (clarinet), Petra van der Heide (harp), Sandrine Chatron (harp), Mark Braafhart (percussion), Marijn Mijnders (violin), Frederik Boits (viola), Honorine Schaeffer (cello), and Alexander de Blaeij (conductor).

The new work was a co-commission of Concertgebouw Orchestra and the University of Amsterdam with financial support of the Netherlands Performing Arts Fund. The score of parallel world [breathing] (2017) by Rozalie Hirs is published by Deuss Music, The Hague, The Netherlands.
