Dove In Residence At Orlando Festival

10/07/2017
Jonathan Dove is Composer-in-Residence at Orlando Festival in the Netherlands.

The 36th edition of the Orlando Festival offers a wide variety of energetic concerts and features ten works from Dove across eleven days, 10 – 20 August 2017.

A highlight includes Katherine Dowling performing the solo piano piece Catching Fire, which has been performed in Utrecht, Singapore, Melbourne, London, and elsewhere, since its premiere at Cheltenham Festival by its dedicatee Melvyn Tan.

The festival will also see the Dutch premiere of In Damascus, a work for tenor and string quartet with a text by Syrian poet Ali Safar. Recently released on a new CD by Mark Padmore and the Sacconi Quartet, the Guardian said that “[t]he beauty of the piece is its restraint. It doesn’t sensationalise, get maudlin, moralise or politicise. The words are direct and the music respects that.”

Also in August, Dove's chorale prelude Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam will receive its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall for Prom 47 with organist William Whitehead. The piece was commissioned as part of the Orgelbüchlein Project, a major international composition project to complete J S Bach’s Orgelbüchlein (Little Organ Book).
