Patrick Higgins - Hyperborea & Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday/ Friday Friday
Composer, guitarist and producer Patrick Higgins (also a member of New York avant-garde outfit Zs) will perform with string ensemble of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. The performance will feature the European premiere of his own composition ‘Hyperborea No. 1', about impending climate collapse, as well as a live rendition of Carlo Gesualdo's 'Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday'. Gesualdo (1566-1613) was an Italian composer and nobleman from the late Renaissance who explored novel progressions, harmonies, and tonality that were unheard of in his time, and influenced the likes of Igor Stravinsky and Wolfgang Rihm. The concert will feature custom stage design by NY artist Elizabeth Jaeger.
