On the seventh day...
Two new works by Mark Andre will both find their premiere performances on 30 March. Echographie for orchestra will be performed by the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra in Fürth (as well as in Bamberg the following day) and Riss 1 will be presented by the Ensemble Intercontemporain at the Philharmonie de Paris.
Riss 1 was commissioned for the EIC’s Genesis Project, part of the ensemble’s 40th birthday celebrations, in which composers were asked to compose works corresponding to the seven days of creation. Mark Andre’s work corresponds to the seventh day, and also completes his trilogy for ensemble, whose preceding two parts were premiered by the Ensemble Modern and the Ensemble Musikfabrik.
