Anna Thorvaldsdottir programme II
Primo Taccuino dell’ ombra e della luce
In the Light of Air
New European Ensemble / Ensemble Academie Koninklijk Conservatorium / Carlo Boccadoro, conductor
In the second part of this portrait in music, three earlier pieces by Anna Thorvaldsdottir form a showcase of the way her work has developed into a ‘combination of strength and intimacy’, as it was once described in the British magazine Gramophone. The programme culminates in In the Light of Air, an ensemble piece whose four movements flow together seamlessly, each one featuring a different solo instrument.
