The whole Concertgebouw audience: the supporters and the opponents were completely "agreed" with the music ....
NTR Radio 4 (Hans Haffmans, Frederike Berntsen) describes these moments as "very rare for contemporary music". Another review is here in:
A fascinating silence in the audience during the concert and a long standing ovation of the concert hall after the finale partly speak about what we have achieved together. Please continue reading / listening / watching here.
Above is an excerpt from the pre-premiere on 23 November in Muziekcentrum van de Omroep. Hilversum (NL). With a great collaboration of the Dutch Radio Choir, Sigvards Kļava (LV) and NTR ZaterdagMatinee.
A grateful gratitude and a high esteem for all support, effort and confidence."
