ADANA

for flute, viola, percussion and electronics



Adana was composed in 2016 on the occasion of the Golden Label Career Award, which Wim Henderickx received from Klassiek Centraal, a webzine that covers classical and contemporary music. He wrote a small raga (ragini) for two musicians of the HERMESensemble, flute and viola, and he played the percussion part himself.

Adana is a raga which is symbolically linked to the late evening; it was an important raga in 17th century Indian music.

Wim Henderickx's RAGA cycle (RAGA I, II, III) from the 1990s was recorded on CD by the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra (before: Royal Flemish Philharmonic) in 1999, conducted by Grant Llewellyn.

This work was a preliminary study for his music-theatre piece REVELATIONS, which was commissioned by Muziektheater Transparant and had its premiere at the Opera XXI Festival at deSingel in Antwerp in April 2017.
