At this year’s edition of November Music in the Netherlands, Barbara will give the Dutch premiere of John Zorn’s Jumalattaret together with pianist Stephen Gosling. Last July the duo gave the European premiere of the piece at Gulbenkian Music in Portugal.
Jumalattaret is a cycle of songs for voice and piano worshipping the gods, who draws on the most significant text of Finnish literature, the epic Kalevala, a collection of oral tradition stories published in 1835.
