Kevin Volans and Sisu
26th August 2012
Photo by Nick MillerNo stranger to writing percussion music, Kevin Volans has rewritten his virtuosic trio Chakra for percussion ensemble and orchestra. The original work was written for the dynamic Norwegian trio Sisu and it is they who have commissioned this new version.
Like two of Volans’ previous percussion works, Akrodha (1998) and Asanga (1997), he has given this piece a Sanskrit name. 'Chakra' means 'wheel' - a name which reflects some moments in the piece. The world premiere will take place on September 14 with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra as part of The Ultima Festival in Oslo. The conductor will be Ingar Bergby.
