Baltic Sea meets Amazon: the musicians of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic come from all the countries neighbouring the Baltic Sea, and this year the orchestra’s summer project is entitled Waterworks . Of course, any music lover immediately associates Handel’s Water Music – the Baltic Sea Philharmonic performs the popular piece alongside new works with such programmatic titles as Drenched by Charles Coleman and Water Possessed Afresh by Gene Pritsker. However, the Berlin concert will also feature the waves found in South American jungles. The American composer Philip Glass, a pioneer of minimal music, derived the music of his ballet score Aguas da Amazonia from the multi-faceted sounds and rhythms of the Amazon and its tributaries. Once again, the audience may look forward to a newly instrumented version for large symphony orchestra, performed by Kristjan Järvi and his Baltic Sea Philharmonic.
