The work also featured in our first live concert since February, in a special summer performance on the terrace of the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam, on Thursday 23 July. Alongside the Ethan Braun, the concert included works by Sofia Gubaidulina, Louis Andriessen, Calliope Tsoupak and Avenue Azure.
