Canadian premiere of Lera Auerbach's „Eterniday

Hochgeladene Datei

Lera Auerbach had to rewrite the work „Eterniday (Hommage à W.A. Mozart)“ for bass drum, celesta and strings, which was almost completed in autumn 2009, since her manuscript was burned in her apartment after a fire. Since then, the work has had its premiere in many countries. On January 25, 2020, Daniel Raiskin and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra will bring Auerbach's “Eterniday (homage to W.A. Mozart)” to the Canadian premiere as part of the Winnipeg New Music Festival.

“The manuscript of the new work was gone. I tried to remember what I had written, but soon gave up any hopes to resurrect it, the creative impulse behind this work was gone, and without my manuscript to guide me back I lost the sense of what this work was to me. So I decided to start anew and to write a different piece altogether. Even the instrumentation of the work changed - instead of a full chamber orchestra as was in my original sketch - now it was down to bass drum, celesta and strings”, the composer said.
