dark dreams in Berlin

Reading time: 1 min. Simon Rattle Georg Friedrich Haas

The New York Times has reviewed Georg Friedrich Haas’ dark dreams. Read the full review online.

The world première will be followed by national premières in Belgium, Luxembourg and Austria in March; the United States première will take place on 6 October at Carnegie Hall.

The composer on dark dreams:

“The high level of both orchestra and conductor, and Simon Rattle’s high opinion of in vain, initially rather paralyzed than encouraged me. […] I didn’t intend to have a contrabassoon solo – but it soon became clear that it had to be there. There was this incredible performer [Sophie Dartigalongue], so that the possibility for the solo was created.”
