17 Oct 10 NOVEMBER 2022 – NOVEMBER MUSIC – PHILHARMONIE ZUIDNEDERLAND
Orchestral dreams full of rock energy:
Worlds of sound flow together in the unique oeuvre of American guitarist and composer Bryce Dessner. His rock adventures with hit band The National are renowned. But Dessner also composes for symphony orchestras and the Kronos Quartet. His energetic, post-minimalist music is reaching an ever-widening audience. During November Music 2022, Bryce Dessner will be festival composer. Together with philharmonie zuidnederland, Dessner will present a sampling of his orchestral oeuvre. Trombonist Jörgen van Rijen excels during the Trombone Concerto written especially for him. Dessner himself performs a starring role in his moving double-guitar concert St Carolyn by the Sea. He is joined by his Dutch kindred spirit Aart Strootman.
