News & Reviews

  • Dutch composer Louis Andriessen has been awarded The Marie-Josée Kravis Prize for New Music at the New York Philharmonic. The honor recognizes a composer for extraordinary artistic endeavor in the field of new music, and is one of the world's largest new-music prizes, consisting of $200,000 and a commission to compose a work for the New York Philharmonic. The Philharmonic will give the World Premiere of a new orchestral work by Andriessen in the 2018–19 season. Nonesuch Records President Robert Hurwitz offers an appreciation here.

  • Louis Andriessen's new work, Theatre of the World, which explores the life of 17th-century Jesuit polymath Athanasius Kircher, was given its world premiere by the LA Philharmonic, led by Reinbert de Leeuw, at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA this weekend. The multimedia production, directed by Pierre Audi, will receive its European premiere in Amsterdam, with de Leeuw and the Dutch National Opera, in June. "While eclecticism is now the compositional norm (much more so than when he was first experimenting with bold stylistic mixtures in the 1960s and '70s)," says the New York Times in its review, "Mr. Andriessen was there first, and he still does it best."

  • About This Album

    Dutch composer Louis Andriessen is represented on his second Nonesuch recording by De Tijd (Time), which was inspired by writings by St. Augustine. The work seeks to evoke the sound of a continuous present, an awareness of time standing still. Composed in 1981, it contains constant changes of time signature and rhythms with their own metric and instrumental identity. The layers of sounds are represented by choir; violins/flutes/organ; and pianos/vibraphones/crotales. De Tijd received its US premiere in 1991 at the Bang On A Can Festival, under the direction of Reinbert De Leeuw.
