🎥 Two FREE screenings of the "Raising Waves" during the Minimal Music Festival in the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ on 16 April.
Program note: "Portrait of a sound magician caught between two worlds. Maxim Shalygin is one of the most remarkable composers of his generation. This is your chance to find out more about Shalygin and his work. Ukrainian director Anastasiia Suprun-Zhyvodrov followed her compatriot for a considerable time. It has resulted in an intriguing, beautifully filmed documentary of about 90 minutes. At its centre is a lengthy conversation that musicologist Stas Nevmerzhytskyi had with the composer in the Netherlands. But the filmmakers also travelled with Shalygin to his birthplace in Ukraine. The documentary was filmed before the Russian invasion and was completed last year."
On the same day there will be performance of the "Severade" with Maya Fridman & Cello Octet Amsterdam and premiere of the "Delirium" with Tomoko Mukaiyama 向井山朋子, Antonii Baryshevskyi, Laura Sandee & Gerard Bouwhuis

DELIRIUM for 4 grand pianos is a dream project that will come true in a month's time! It's the IVth chapter of the macrocycle S I M I L A R. I started working on Delirium last autumn and the score is finally finished. It is a huge work, about 60 minutes long, commissioned by the Minimal Music Festival .
With financial support from the Friends of the Muziekgebouw, the Tomoko Mukaiyama Foundation, and the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. This work will be performed by excellent pianists, each of whom has a distinct personality and has made a significant contribution to contemporary music: Tomoko Mukaiyama 向井山朋子 , Antonii Baryshevskyi, Laura Sandee & Gerard Bouwhuis .
My special thanks go to Shane Burmania and the whole team for all their hard work and confidence.
We look forward to this evening and hope you will join us!
