Percussion Concerto for Alexej Gerassimez and the Düsseldorf Symphony

An incredible opportunity to write a new solo percussion concerto for Alexej Gerassimez. Commissioned by the Tonhalle Duesseldorf the work is scheduled for performances on the 5th, 7th and 8th of June 2020 with the Dusseldorf Symphony Orchestra.

These concerts are part of a big worldwide “safe nature” project. All over the world Beethoven’s Pastorale is going to be performed on 5th of June 2020 and this new concerto will also be dedicated to this topic and inspired by Beethoven’s Pastorale. In this spirit, the aim is that Alexej will play on instruments made of recycled materials.  

Conductor: Alexandre Bloch, Principal Guest Conductor of the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker
