New Holmen piece premiered at Copenhagen Phil concert

Copenhagen · Jexper Holmen's new piece for solo viola, 'Inflict', to be premiered by Jákup Lützen alongside symphonic works by Elgar and Nielsen.

The fifth and final installment in this season's 4'33 Phil series sees the world premiere of a new Jexper Holmen piece for solo viola.

Beginning with Li-Ying Wu last September, five Edition·S composers have had the opportunity to premiere a new solo instrumental piece at symphonic concerts with the Copenhagen Phil during the 2016/17 season.

Each piece has aimed to portray a member of the Copenhagen Phil. Wu wrote Profeti for violinst Idinna Lützhøft. In November Rachel Yatzkan's Ethnisica was premiered by clarinettist Giovanni Punzi, while January saw the premieres of Ylva Lund Bergner's B-so-R for percussionist Benjamin Fox and Ejnar Kanding's Schichtstruktur for cellist Richard Krug.

On March 23 violist Jákup Lützen will premiere Jexper Holmen's new piece, Inflict, concluding this year's 4'33 Phil series. The concert also includes Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto and Carl Nielsen's Symphony No. 5, and will be repeated on March 24.
