On Sunday 31 October 2021 at 14:00 CET, the Amsterdam cutting-edge music venue Orgelpark presents a portrait concert of Rozalie Hirs. The performers are Spectra Ensemble and Filip Rathé (conductor).
The afternoon programme evolves around Rozalie’s dreams of airs (2017-18), a cycle in which poetry and music play equally important roles. Its sound world features eight musicians, a singer who speaks, and electronic sounds. In addition, the visual artists Boris Tellegen and Geert Jan Mulder have designed a live video installation for the performance. The score of dreams of airs (2017-18) by Rozalie Hirs is published by Deuss Music, The Hague, The Netherlands.
For the event the composer-poet has devised a brandnew version of the score, extending the orchestration to include one or more pipe organs. The concert is made possible through grants of Orgelpark, Netherlands Performing Arts Fund, and Creative Industries Fund.
