Avner Dorman’s Percussion Concerti Performed Worldwide

Dorman’s electric double percussion concerto, Spices, Perfumes, Toxins!, receives its UK premiere in Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on July 1 featuring soloists Daniel Jones and Toby Kearney with the RNCM Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andre de Ridder. The Hamburg Philharmonic also presents performances of Spices, Perfumes, Toxins! with Martin Grubinger and Manuel Hofstätter as soloists and Pietari Inkinen on the podium on June 20 and 21.
The 2010-11 season picks up the momentum of the percussion concerti and sees Dorman in residence with the Alabama Symphony – who will present the world premiere of his Saxophone Concerto with Joshua Redman as well as existing works and a newly written commission. In January 2011, Maestro David Robertson will lead the San Francisco Symphony in the premiere of their recent commission from Dorman, the orchestral piece Uriah. Additionally, Dorman’s contribution to the Magnum Opus commissioning project entitled (not) The Shadow (not after Hans Christian Andersen) will be premiered by the Marin Symphony with Alasdair Neale in November with additional performances by the Winnipeg Symphony in February 2011 and the Nashville Symphony in May 2011.
