The Tears of Nature: Beauty, Energy, Destruction and New Beginnings.

Three natural disasters of apocalyptic proportions represent man’s dependence on nature and his impositions upon it, and they are simultaneously a triumph of the spirit over destruction: the first movement of Tan Dun’s Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra was written in memory of the devastating earthquake in Sichuan in 2008, which claimed the lives of almost 70,000 people. The Chinese composer, who has lived in the USA for many years, dedicated the second movement to the catastrophe of Fukushima – a tsunami followed by a man-made nuclear disaster. The last part stands for the optimism and energy of the inhabitants of New York, who defied Hurricane Sandy with confidence. Tan Dun, composer and Oscar winner, wrote Tears of Nature for multi-percussionist   Martin Grubinger: “While composing, I thought about nature, focused on the passionate nature of Martin Grubinger.” (Tan Dun)

Afterwards, the Viennese Jeunesse Orchester celebrates the energetic festival of renewal with Igor Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps. saying: “In the sacre du printemps, I wanted to depict the luminous resurrection of nature, which is awakened to new life […], the resurrection of the whole world.” (Igor Stravinsky)
