Daniele Gatti takes the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on tour

Reading time: 1 min. Wolfgang Rihm


All spatiality should be circumscribed in the music. I attempted to outwit the resonance with a consistent harmonic system; the voices move for the most part within a firmly contoured framework of chords, so that even rapid music is possible without blurring.

Wolfgang Rihm: IN-SCHRIFT (c) Universal EditionThe basic idea is succinct: an IN-SCHRIFT [“inscription” or “epigraph”]. This occurs in writing [in Schrift], both musical and writing notational characters, written into the line like adages. The orchestration is darkened, thereby attaining focus. (Wolfgang Rihm)

Daniele Gatti will be conducting Wolfgang Rihm’s IN-SCHRIFT together with Brucker’s Symphony No. 9 on a tour that takes him from the Netherlands to the UK, Switzerland and Germany.

The tour commences on 30 August at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. Follow-up performances take place on 1 September at the BBC Proms in London and on 4 September at the Lucerne Festival, before the tour concludes on 6 September at the Philharmonie in Berlin.
