Additional Information

WIZARD OF PERCUSSION
Written for the phenomenal Martin Grubinger, The Tears of Nature is a percussion concerto by prominent contemporary Chinese composer Tan Dun, celebrating the human spirit in its endeavour to live, fight and dance with nature. The SSO and American conductor Robert Spano also pay tribute to the esteemed late British composer-conductor Oliver Knussen (1952-2018), and conclude the concert with Rachmaninoff’s soulful Third Symphony, music of nostalgic melancholy with a tantalising whiff of modernity.
