In memoriam Horatiu Radulescu (1942-2008)

This concert is organised in memory of Horatiu Radulescu, who died last September at the age of 66. Five of the performers who were most closely associated with his music are coming to Amsterdam to play an evening of his works in Het Bethaniënklooster. The works range from Inner Time, from the early 1980s, through spectral masterpieces like Das Andere and Lux Animae, to his later sonatas for cello and for piano, including his last work, the Sixth Piano Sonata "Return to the source of light", premiered at the 2007 Transit Festival in Belgium. An evening to remember, and an opportunity to get to know some incredible music.
