James Dillon: La Navette At Ars Musica

Bruges, 10 April 2009
James Dillon's la navette at Ars Musica

James Dillon's thrilling orchestral piece, la navette will be heard as part of the final concert of this year's Ars Musica Festival in Bruges on 10 April 2009, performed by the Brussels Philharmonic under their Principal Conductor Michel Tabachnik. The work is inspired by a theme that has occupied Dillon in much of his recent music, the Ovidian myth of Philomela and Tereus. Having raped Philomela, Tereus cuts out her tongue to prevent her speaking about the crime. Philomela instead weaves her tale; la navette is the shuttle of the loom. The work was commissioned for the 2001 Donaueschingen Festival. Dillon has subsequently composed an opera, Philomela, premièred in Porto in September 2004.
