Wayne Siegel work to be premiered in Aarhus


Wayne Siegel's Concerto for Organ and Orchestra is to be premiered on March 1 by soloist Ulrik Spang-Hanssen and the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra. The American born composer has been commissioned to compose this work for the new organ in the Symphonic Hall in Musikhuset Aarhus, and on the website of the symphony orchestra he reveals a little about the result:

”The concerto is in three continuous movements. The sources of inspiration count the rich classical organ tradition, the classical concerto form, and minimalism, but also electronic music and film music – from Hollywood to Bollywood.”

The concert programme also includes works by Smetana, Janácek and Gustav Holst.
