In response to recent events in France, and in time for Thanksgiving today, the Seattle Symphony have made a special release of Giya Kancheli’s ‘Nu.Mu.Zu’ for free streaming and download. Ludovic Morlot, the musical director explains; “Earlier this month, we were deeply touched by ‘Nu.Mu.Zu’, and by the sentiments Kancheli expressed about his hopes for a world without violence. After the recent terrorist attacks in my home country of France, and elsewhere, we felt strongly that this music should go out into the world and be shared with everyone.”
You can listen to or download the piece on the Seattle Symphony website
. ‘Nu.Mu.Zu’ was co-commissioned by the Seattle Symphony and the National Orchestra of Belgium and the world premiere took place last month.
