Visions at Sea by the young Dutch composer Joey Roukens will be heard for the first time in a new version for string orchestra. This work has had successful performances in Great Britain, America and Israel. The rich, colourful sea music takes us on a journey of Dutch maritime’s past, seamen’s songs and at times evokes Sweelinck.
Visions at Sea (version for string orchestra, world première) will be performed on February 10th at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam and on February 17th at Stadsgehoorzaal – Grote Zaal, Leiden.
