Lera Auerbach Ars Goetia (Dutch première)*

*Co-commission Muziekgebouw and String Quartet Biënnale Amsterdam

Lera Auerbach fled from Russia to the United States at a young age. She made her career as pianist and composer, writes poetry and is also a visual artist. In 2016 the Nederlands Kamerkoor gave the world première of 72 Angels, a monumental work for choir and saxophone quartet. The String Quartet Biennale now presents the Dutch première of Gothia – a sequel to 72 Angels, this time composed for choir and string quartet.
