The Lahti Symphony Orchestra Premieres Anna Meredith's Nautilus in Finland
Sep. 01, 2021
On September 16, Dalia Stasevska led The Lahti Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere performance of Anna Meredith's signature piece, Nautilus, arranged by Jack Ross for orchestra. Performed at Sibelius Hall in Lahti as part of the ensemble's opening concert of the season, the work was commissioned by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra for the inauguration concert of Dalia Stasevska as its Chief Conductor.
The Hermes Experiment performs Anna Meredith's Fin like a Flower, arranged for soprano and three players by Marianne Schofield, on September 26 at Kings Place in London. The performance is part of a celebration of The Hermes Experiment's new album "SONG", which includes an eclectic collection of song commissions written for the quartet and songs newly arranged by members of the ensemble from different styles and eras. Fin like a Flower was premiered by The Hermes Experiment in 2019.
Finally, The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Louis Langrée, perform Anna Meredith's Anno on October 7-8 in the Ballroom of Cincinnati's Music Hall. Intertwined with Antonio Vivaldi's well-known Four Seasons and performed for an audience in an immersive style, Anno combines the old and new, acoustic and electronic, 'popular' and classical, ultimately defying and questioning the need for any such categorization. The composer will perform the live electronics during the performances which include projected visuals drawn by Anna’s sister, Eleanor Meredith.
