★★★★☆: UK première of Rihm’s “percussion epic” Tutuguri

Reading time: 1 min. Wolfgang Rihm

Tutuguri is vast – over two hours of music in this performance – and explosively violent. (Andrew Clements, 01.02.2015, The Guardian)

The UK première of Wolfgang Rihm’s Tutuguri was performed by Kent Nagano, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Leigh Melrose (in the role of the speaker) on 31 January at the Barbican.

Andrew Clements gave a four star review, which you can read on The Guardian. Tune in to BBC Radio 3 to listen to a recording of the première. The recording will be online until 2 March.

Last but not least, we’ve uploaded the study score of the first scene for you, which you can view here.
