De dromen van Anna Girò

Jan 12 2012

Anna Girò, a high-profile singer and composer’s muse of Antonio Vivaldi, is portrayed by Louis Andriessens in La Girò. This violin concerto, performed for the first time in the Netherlands, features the versatile violinist Monica Germino who plays the solo violin part while also narrating and singing about Anna’s experiences with Vivaldi and her dreams. Andries van Rossem has translated the ‘stylised ecstasy’ of the Dutch carillon into a brand-new concerto. Musical logic predominates in the music of this devotee of Mondrian and Mark Rothko. Zygmunt Krauze created the homogenous soundscapes of his ‘muzyka unistycna’ inspired by the paintings of Strzeminski. Pairs of musicians weave enthralling patterns in Steve Reich’s Double Sextet.

Live broadcast by Radio 4 (NTR).
