Adagio was written in 2016, commissioned by the Noord Nederlands Orkest. Duration approx 6:00
First performances: March 9 at Oosterpoort Groningen and March 10 at Tivoli-Vredenburg Utrecht, by NNO conducted by Antony Hermus.
Adagio was inspired by the sea. Its structure is shaped like a wave: A movement from silence to fortissimo and back to silence.
Time passes by during a slow dialogue of 2 big drums, positioned left and right behind the orchestra. Published by DONEMUS 2017
