Concert Information

Wolfgang Rihm’s work for large orchestra, percussionists, taped chorus and speaker, in which scatological and anti-religious words are used in a musical texture that ranges from hypnotic haze, to raw blasts of noise to slow-motion Stravinsky. In the second half, ten percussionists pummel out an intense, shimmering, at times deafening, rhythmic ritual.
