Rondom Unsuk Chin
Unsuk Chin was inspired by the street, Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays a 'classic' by György Ligeti and a new piece by Thomas van Dun has its premiere in the Royal Concertgebouw.
Unsuk Chin and the city
In 2008 and 2009, Unsuk Chin visited Hong Kong and Guangzhou. The atmosphere of the old residential areas with their narrow, winding alleys, marketplaces and food vendors reminded her of the Seoul of her youth, where itinerant street performers created a buzz with dance and music. In Gougalōn , Chin transformed those memories into a theatrical score, in which she has the ensemble play for a poor street orchestra. The percussionists use empty bottles and tin cans, among other things. Chin was also inspired by the street for her chamber orchestra work Graffiti . In the three-part work for chamber orchestra, layers of sound overlap like tags and pieces in a graffiti painting.
Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays Ligeti
Chin's teacher György Ligeti produces the masterful Piano Concerto , with none other than Ligeti specialist Pierre-Laurent Aimard as soloist. Asko|Schönberg opens with a new piece by the young Dutch composer and songwriter Thomas van Dun. His plans? At the time of writing, these are still in the future.
