Muziekgebouw aan T’ij Amsterdam Netherlands

The Stichting New Music First celebrates Anton Bruckner's 200th birthyear in 2024 with ten premieres each corresponding to Bruckner's ten symphonic works. 

Spiri II: Sheltered Ritual is directly inspired by his symphony No. 4 and is a personal internalization of Bruckner's music world. As part of the Spiri series (2023~ 2024)- Spiri II: Sheltered Ritual pursues an interesting musical form, original sound world, attention to intricate timbre with unmistakable fondness of percussion ensemble in a chamber orchestra setting.

After the successful collaboration of YeonDo Bosch Requiem, Oh again partnered with New European Ensemble to produce Spiri II: Sheltered Ritual, a substantial length program (Ca. 45 mins), with an expanded strings section and the addition of a percussion ensemble. 

The Bruckner Casco opens the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ Amsterdam’s 2024-2025 season with Netherlands' top-notch ensembles during the three day festival (13 through 15 September 2024).
