ROWIAL D' y' like contemporary (chamber-)orchestral music? Which may include dissonance & complexity but doesn't need to be fully srcewed, micro- &/or a-tonal &/or derived from cryptically generated combinations of fibunacci numbers? But it should offer perceivable "drama", dynamics as well as melodies, rhythms and colorful instrumentation? Well, this very FINE CELLO CONCERT is a prime opportunity to get more of that.

about

Erik Friedlander's 2014 concerto for himself and 21 instrumentalists is inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone, or Kore, who was kidnapped by Hades and eventually forced to spend half the year with him in the underworld. Although this myth is used to describe how the seasons came to be, Friedlander chose to see another side: His KORE tells of the wresting away of a loved one by death and the all too human hope that the intensity of one’s mourning will bring that loved one back to life. Loss is complicated and sometimes the loved one does indeed come back, visiting us through memory and dream. These moments are celebrated by KORE
