About this concert

In collaboration with its creative partner Pierre Audi and the composer–conductor Tan Dun, the Concertgebouw Orchestra is presenting a groundbreaking musical performance, including the world premiere of Tan Dun’s Requiem for Nature with choir and soloists.

Tan Dun ensures that virtuosity and innovation go hand in hand with spirituality, reflection and enticing orchestral music. He will be conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra in his newly commissioned Requiem for Nature, a spin-off of his large-scale Buddha Passion, at the imposing Gashouder. In addition to the Rotterdam-based choir Laurens Vocaal, the performance will feature the Chinese dancer and pipa player Chen Yining, Mongolian throat singer Hasibagen (who also plays the morin khuur, a kind of cello) and the Tibetan singer, Zeren Yangjin. Pierre Audi, creative partner of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, will take inspiration from both the music and the theatrical space of the Gashouder. Tan Dun has worked with the acclaimed director on several occasions, and always with phenomenal results.
