NY Premiere: Salonen's Karawane

  • David Geffen Hall

Danya joins New York Choral Artists and  the New York Philharmonic in the New York premiere of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Karawane.  Buy tickets here!

What can you expect to hear as you listen to our 2015–18 Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Karawane? A lot, apparently. There’s an orchestra, of course, and a chorus speaking, singing, and (in a make-believe language) whispering the poem that gives the composition its name. The poet was Hugo Ball, founder of the Dadaist movement in 1916, and his “sound poem” begins “jolifanto bambla ô falli bamble/großiga m’pfa habla horem….” The composer has provided an extensive program note that gives some clues to his work and states, in part, “I found the idea of a convoy of heavy animals, jolifants — a traveling circus most likely — oddly fascinating. I started to imagine a circus lost in time and space, in endless slow motion through strange landscapes towards the next performance with or without audiences, no purpose other than keeping moving.” Salonen provides a “road map for the journey” that includes sounds of a manic drum set, cloud-like episodes, brass chorales, and the influence of the Balinese Ramayana Monkey Chant. Perhaps Los Angeles Times music critic Mark Swed summarizes Karawane best as “a mischievous, madcap 30-minute work.”
