Richard Rijnvos: Riflessi
In 2007 Richard Rijnvos started a series of compositions under the collective title Riflessi. ‘Riflesso’ is Italian for sheen, reflective light of a tone different from that of its source. The Riflessiseries explores the exceptional scoring of a classic from the 20thCentury – the three pieces on this CD using the same orchestration as Refrain (1959) by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Swinging Music (1970) by the Polish composer Kazimierz Serocki, and Arnold Schönberg’s Suite, opus 29.
We recorded this CD in January 2019 in Amsterdam. The release concert will be on 28thOctober 2019 at the Purcell Room, Southbank.
