The music of Louis Andriessen

 

continued

And with the composer himself in residence for the week preceding the event, each performance on the program promises to come as close to definitive as one can imagine. The first work, 1995's Arrival of Willibrord, will be played by Steven Ball, U-M carillonist and the Michigan Theater's house organist. The second work, La Passione, from 2002, will be performed by jazz vocalist Cristina Zavalloni and violinist Monica Germino — the composer affectionately calls them his "muses" — plus an ensemble of winds, brass, violins, electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, and percussion drawn from the U-M Symphony Band, led by Michael Haithcock. The third and final work, M Is for Man, Music, and Mozart, from 1991, will be performed by Zavalloni with Haithcock and the band as the accompaniment for Greenaway's film of the same name featuring a quartet of naked dancers representing the gods in the act of inventing man, movement, music, and, improbably enough, Mozart.

Anything is possible, but only by attending will you ever know for certain what you would otherwise have missed.
