World première 'Riflesso sullo spazio' by Richard RIJNVOS

(5 April 2019)

On 11 April 2019 the Ives Ensemble from Amsterdam will present the world première of Richard RIJNVOS’ composition Riflesso sullo spazio

The work is part of a series of companion pieces, started in 2007 with Riflesso sul tasto, followed by Riflesso sull'acqua and Riflesso sull'arco. Each Riflesso explores the same exceptional scoring of a classic from the last century. Riflesso sullo spazio is a companion piece to Arnold Schoenberg's Suite (opus 29). It is scored for 3 clarinets, string trio and piano and lasts no less than 40 minutes.

The world première performance of Riflesso sull’arco will take place in the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ in Amsterdam. There will be five repeat performances between April and December in various cities in the Netherlands. In October the work will also be performed in the UK, i.e. in London's Southbank Centre and during a Musicon concert in Durham.
