Symmetries for Netherlands Wind Ensemble

Harmony and symmetry are the necessary ingredients for beauty. In Symmetries, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble searches for the ultimate beauty, where passion and precision come together. On stage, a spectacular and imaginative meeting between dance, music, and images is engendered as dancers from a variety of disciplines inspire one another to ever-greater heights.

One of America’s greatest living composers, John Adams, wrote the piece Fearful Symmetries, which has been arranged especially for the full ensemble. This dynamic and rousing piece offers a regularity alongside exhilarating riffs and colourful big band fragments. Symmetries is a performance that carries you along to a world of terrifying beauty.
