Published: 01 March 2006
March promises to be both a busy and exciting month for Brett Dean, with the world premiere of Komarov's Fall, one of four new works (alongside others by Turnage, Saariaho and Pintscher) commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and performed under Sir Simon Rattle, intended as "Asteroids" to complement Holst's The Planets. Dean also performs as soloist in the German premiere of his Viola Concerto with the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra under Simone Young. Dean returns to Australia at the end of March where he performs as both violist and conductor with regular collaborators the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in a programme including works by Dean, Mozart and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht.
