"Register" is the title of the organ concerto written by the American Nico Muhly for the British organist James McVinnie. The two have known each other for a long time - and share an enthusiasm for the English Renaissance composer Orlando Gibbons. A few chords from a "Pavane" by Gibbons were the starting point for this work. André de Ridder will conduct two works from Iceland in keeping with our seasonal focus: "Catamorphosis" by our Creative Chair Anna Thorvaldsdottir is about nature and climate change, about hope and despair. And Daníel Bjarnason's "Emergence" shows how quietly a large orchestra can play.
