Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam
Martin Fröst, clarinet / Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra / Jaap van Zweden
Weathered is set in five 5-minute movements, each one exploring a different weathered element: Metal, Heart, Stone, Wood, and Earth. These weathered elements are both beautiful and poignant; a rusted bridge, a broken heart, a wind-worn castle, a majestic forest, and a warming planet. Weathered also touches on our collective global experiences of the COVID pandemic and the alarm of global warming.
— Anna Clyne
"Rarely have I heard a contemporary composition with such melodic content as this concert. A start that immediately transports your ears into the speed of the music is a surprise in itself ... Very exciting to listen to and to see
." —Opera Magazine
"For the special sound combinations that are hidden in an orchestra, Clyne has a fine nose." —De Volkskrant
