Russian Premiere: “Eterniday” by Lera Auerbach in Moscow

Under the direction of its principal conductor Vladimir Spivakov, the Russian National Philharmonic Orchestra will present the Russian premiere of Lera Auerbach‘s Hommage à Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart “Eterniday” for bass drum, celesta and strings on 22 November 2014 at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow. The world premiere of “Eterniday” was given on 25 April 2010 in Koblenz performed by the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie under Daniel Raiskin.

Although the work was almost completed in the autumn of 2009, Lera Auerbach had to rewrite it in 2010 because her manuscript was burned when there was a fire in her apartment.

“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.
