Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Sound Up, Zaryade Hall

The debut concert of the SOUND UP prime series will see the performance of works that are rarely heard or have never been performed in Russia before: the mesmerizing and monumental opus of John Luther Adams “Become Ocean” that received a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 and a Grammy for the “Best Contemporary Classical Composition” in 2015; Jonny Greenwood’s suite based on the music from There Will Be Blood movie that was nominated for Grammy in 2008 for the “Best Soundtrack”; selected compositions from the Under the Skin movie that were written by Mica Levy who collected a number of awards at the European and American film festivals; and a number of other pieces.

The concert series’ first guest will be Robert Ames, one of the principal conductors of the London Contemporary Orchestra who has lead this famous music collective during its performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican, Royal Festival Hall, St. John at Hackney, Oval Space and other famous concert venues. The British conductor has worked with such outstanding contemporary composers as Steve Reich, Terry Riley and Meredith Monk, and musicians Jonny Greenwood, Thom Yorke, Frank Ocean, William Basinski and DJ Shadow.
