Future Follows Us
‘’Future Follows Us’’ premiere took place on 4th of February 2020 in the concert hall Hanzas Perons in Riga, Latvia. In the first part of the concert multi-directional solo flutist & woodwinds player Pedro Eustache & conductor Normunds Šnē with Sinfonietta Rīga premièred Platon Buravicky's newly commissioned piece ‘’Future Follows Us’’. The concert was organised by Artes Liberales and produced by Erica Synths.
In his artistic and professional path of more than 40 years, Pedro Eustache has developed a highly eclectic, richly unique yet personal voice of artistic expression both as a woodwinds player, composer and researcher. He has contributed as the lead woodwinds player for the original scores of movies like The Passion of the Christ, Kung Fu Panda, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones 4, Munich, The Lion King 2, to name a few, as well as recorded, toured and performed with artists like John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Paul McCartney, Gustavo Dudamel and Yanni, among others. Eustache’s work goes from East to West, from ancient to modern and has brought him several prestige awards and global exposure as a unique multidirectional woodwinds soloist.
Platon Buravicky is a classical composer, pianist and improviser who can be considered one of the most notable contemporary composers in Latvia. His creative work is dedicated not only to symphonic and chamber music but also extends to electroacoustic music often using sound synthesis as the central tool of composing. His piece ‘’Future Follows Us’’ is newly commissioned and created specifically for Sinfonietta Riga and Pedro Eustache as a solo player. In this work Buravicky’s intention is to create a vision of utopian future where borders between countries do not exist and every member of society is free from prejudice against one another.
Sinfonietta Riga is a chamber orchestra led by conductor Normunds Šnē. Established in 2006 Sinfonietta Rīga has collaborated with musicians and composers from across the globe, performing both the classics as well as newly commissioned pieces. In 2014 the orchestra received a Grammy award for Arvo Pärt’s piece Adam’s Lament.
