Andriessen: At seventy, a composer finds new muses
November 5, 2009 — Composer Louis Andriessen turns seventy this year. In a disc celebrating the composer's septuagenarian status with a quartet of recent works, the Boston Modern Orchestra project, conducted by Gil Rose, suggests that several through-lines between established tendencies and new collaborators have kept the Dutch composer's work fresh, vibrant, and engaging.

American Record Guide reviews Louis Andriessen: La Passione
November 1, 2009 — Cristina Zavalloni is a mezzo with backgrounds in both jazz and classical music, whose work is particularly beloved of Louis Andriessen. She is the main protagonist for three of the four works here.

Spirited and pliable performances of subtle, emotive European minimalism
November 1, 2009 — In his book The Rest is Noise, Alex Ross calls Louis Andriessen "the only major European minimalist." You wouldn't know that from the four works on this disc. True, there's repetition, but not in the Glass/Riley/Reich sense of the word. Scored for percussion and three keyboards, the opening work, Bells for Haarlem, is built from long sustained chords that strike at unpredictable intervals, with a subtle melody taking shape as the piece progresses.

Recording wonderfully preserves 'Nixon' opera
October 28, 2009 — The classical CD world may be down, but it's not out. To a great extent, recording companies are recycling older material, yet there is a lot of good, new stuff out. Here are a few that captured my attention. … La Passione and other works by Louis Andriessen, with Gil Rose conducting the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. Andriessen is a Dutch minimalist whose many compositions include stage and dance works. His style borrows from Stravinsky, jazz, and American minimalism and especially Terry Riley. His music is anti-German and anti-romantic.

Lucid Culture review Louis Andriessen: La Passione
September 5, 2009 — This is an important album – to the uninitiated, it may seem strange, but stay with it, there's a payoff at the end. Louis Andriessen is no stranger to adventurous listeners: he's been a fixture of the avant garde for over forty years. This album begins with a carillonesque instrumental and then a series of art songs, all but one based on poems by legendary, mad Italian poet Dino Campana. Campana spent much of his life institutionalized, including his final years: his surreal, twisted, horrific imagery and sense of anguish compare with Baudelaire at his most crazed.

Classical Voice of New England reviews Louis Adriessen: La Passione
August 1, 2009 — This new recording from Gil Rose and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project of music by Louis Andriessen carries a catalogue of disappointing turns and insipid organizational processes of otherwise promising musical events. The players themselves certainly deserve no rebuke. It is a sound, engaging, and artful execution that because of the clarity and precision of an accomplished performance, cannot help exposing some of the shortcomings in the writing itself.
