Marius Flothuis Cantus amoris

Description

Andris Nelsons leads the Concertgebouworkest in Marius Flothuis’ Cantus amoris. This performance of Cantus amoris was given in Flothuis’ memory to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth in October 2014.

Cantus amoris by Marius Flothuis

The Dutch composer and musicologist Marius Flothuis wrote his Cantus amoris in 1978 after the death of his wife Roosje Voorzanger. It is composed for string orchestra, with a particularly important role for the violas: his late wife had played the viola. Flothuis’ music was always emotionally restrained and the audible emotion at the end of Cantus amoris is unique in his work. This performance of Cantus amoris was given in Flothuis’ memory to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth in October 2014.
