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 from the HERMESensemble 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 Royal Flemish Philharmonic in 1999, conducted by Grant Llewellyn.

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