Performance in Berlin with Alarm Will Sound

Soundchecking in Berlin

On March 21st I performed at the Philharmonie, where the Berlin Philharmonic plays, with Alarm Will Sound, one of the world’s premier contemporary chamber orchestras. Three days of rehearsals in New York and a quick trip to Berlin for the concert proved a thrilling and challenging experience. I was blown away by the talent of the group and the focused yet friendly atmosphere Alan Pierson and the members have cultivated. Here’s the program:

Harrison Birtwistle
“Carmen Arcadiae Mechanicae Perpetuum” für Ensemble

Wolfgang Rihm
“Will Sound” für Ensemble

John Adams
“Son of Chamber Symphony” für Kammerensemble

John Orfe
“Dowland Remix” (Flow My Tears)

Aphex Twin
“Cock/Ver 10” arr. Stefan Freund
“Omgyjya Switch 7” arr. Evan Hause
“Gwely Mernans” arr. Ken Thomson

Stefan Freund
“Unremixed”
