Gustavo Dudamel: Esa-Pekka Salonen Insomnia, Gothenburg Symphony

Labels: ,

Gustavo Dudamel conducting Esa-Pekka Salonen Insomnia
Composed in 2002
Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra

"The sound of Insomnia is darker and deeper than that of my other recent orchestral works. I decided to add a quartet of Wagner Tubas to the brass section for the very particular sonority only these rare and weird instruments can produce."
-Esa-Pekka Salonen
