Theater aan het Vrijthof, Maastricht & Muziekgebouw, Eindhoven (NL)

philharmonie zuidnederland & Dominique Vleeshouwers


MacMillan's percussion concerto with soloist Dominique Vleeshouwers is a thrilling pre-program to Berlioz' Symphony Fantastique. A perfect opportunity to see TROMP's Dutch 2014 winner perform with an orchestra close to home after his great success with Tokyo Sinfonietta in China last year. In performing this "expertly engineered piece of soloist-versus-orchestra showmanship" (Financial Times), Dominique follows in the footsteps of great percussionists like Colin Currie or Evelyn Glennie, who premiered MaciMillan's first percussion concerto with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in 1992.

"Veni, Veni, Emmanuel arrests attention from the first downbeat. MacMillan's harmonic signalling and underpinning are lucid. His gestures are graphic in vividness, focused in purpose, powerful yet economical in musculature."
Financial Times

"...strong, punchy rhythms, instant accessibility, an exuberant physicality in the sounds produced by both orchestra and soloist, and, at its centre, a more meditative section of a haunting, incantatory tranquility."
Daily Telegraph

Conductor: Dmitry Liss
