Anna Meredith Anno*
Anno is a brand-new composition by one of the most inventive composers writing today. Combining and intertwining Vivaldi’s four well-known seasonal concerti, The Four Seasons, with her own new electronic compositions, Anna Meredith has created one continuous, hour-long, fresh experience of the original Baroque masterpiece for string orchestra and electronics.
The world premiere will add an extra dimension. Stepping into a dark, transformed world, the audience will experience a year in an hour, surrounded by musicians and projections as a circle of powerful sound and light merges, collides, intersplices and cocoons. The result will be one continuous, hour-long, live experience for the ears and the eyes.
