I yearn to reflect in my own singing/composing the ways that listening has changed me. I write music that craves a listener — whomever that listener may be; and I am concerned with speaking honestly. What I say musically is prompted by a spirit of generosity. - Augusta Read Thomas

On May 5th, the HR Sinfonieorchester will perform the German premiere of Words of the Sea by Augusta Read Thomas, conducted Brad Lubman. The four movements of the orchestral piece are diverse and distinct, each undertaking to deal with the evocations prompted by a particular poetic phrase by poet Wallace Stevens.

Further performances of Words of the Sea will follow in Antwerp, Berlin and Hamburg.
