Hillborg Cold Heat At Proms And Edinburgh Festival
UK premiere performances of major new orchestral work
Following on from a highly successful premiere in January by the Berliner Philharmoniker, Anders Hillborg’s Cold Heat comes to London and Edinburgh on 27 and 29 August 2011 for much anticipated performances at the Proms and Edinburgh International Festival given by the Zürich Tonhalle Orchester under their Chief Conductor David Zinman. The 14 minute orchestral show-piece is a joint commission of the Zürich Tonhalle, Berliner Philharmoniker and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
“Zinman gracefully commanded the score's complex textures, propelling the steady flow of the piece and shaping the music vividly. The players of the Berlin Philharmonic were particularly alert and followed his gestures with verve. Concert master Daishin Kashimoto led the strings in a muscular but sensitive performance.”
