Program

Amériques is Varèse’s portrayal of a new world and is scored for a very large ‎orchestra comprising 125 musicians. Varèse uses percussion, and builds the work by ‎juxtaposing blocks of music, and includes quotes and recurring short motifs, to create a new ‎reality on a huge scale, to symbolise his discovery of the overwhelming scale before him ‎when he arrived in New York. Pierre Boulez, renowned for his interpretation and ‎consolidation of Varèse’s works, wrote 12 Notations for piano in 1946. Thirty ‎years later he revisited the idea of orchestrating these short pieces, and in 1984 he ‎completed the orchestra versions of the first four numbers. The project that went beyond ‎the idea of orchestration to a complete rewriting, including the appearance of small elements ‎of influence from Weber resulting in the creation of an impossibly precise huge orchestral ‎canvas. The programme concludes with Orion, a large scale work by Finnish ‎composer Kaija Saariaho depicting the contrast and inner tension of the Greek mythological ‎character Orion, son of Poseidon, transformed by Zeus into a radiant constellation after his ‎death.‎
