Het Gouden Kalf
philharmonie zuidnederland, Studium Chorale en Toneelgroep Maastricht
Good things come quickly. Jan-Peter de Graaff is one of the most successful young Dutch composers of his generation. His compositions are filled with subtle timbre play, unexpected harmonies and intense narrative power. Accessible music filled with deeply human drama. De Graaff and librettist Jibbe Willems explore the world of the Biblical Exodus. Their oratorio The Golden Calf is inspired by the epic exodus of a people in search of a new future. A timeless subject matter that is powerfully relevant for our time. Studium Chorale and philharmonie zuidnederland will give this apt musical drama its world premiere during the Musica Sacra Maastricht festival.
Oratorio was commissioned by philharmonie zuidnederland in collaboration with Musica Sacra and Studium Chorale, in part to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Studium Chorale.
