An exciting start to a new orchestral collaboration for Signum Records, this album is the first of a new series with the London Sinfonietta - one of the world’s elite contemporary music ensembles with a reputation built on the virtuosity of its performances and ambitious programming. This live recording brings together the world premiere of Anaïs Nin, a new work for soprano and small ensemble, alongside his famed work De Staat.

Anaïs Nin is a monodrama based on the diaries of the same famed author, as well as those of her lovers (Antonin Artaud, René Allendy, Henry Miller and her own Father). A sometimes disturbing tale desire and passion, Andriessen felt that the music should "closely track the irony, despair and passion of this brilliant many-sided woman."

Concert review from which this recording was made: "...[Anaïs Nin’s] resonance is profound and disturbing. By pairing it in concert with an invigorating performance of Andriessen’s early msterpiece, De Staat, whose concern with the individual body and the body politic bears strong parallels, the sinfonietta showed the Dutch composer at his searching best."
Guy Dammann - The Guardian

 "...Performances are very good, with Cristina Zavalloni riveting in her role ..."

Steven Ritter - AudiophileAudition.com - 29 April 2014


"...De Staat remains one of Andriessen’s supreme achievements, an epic rechanelling of Stravinskyan rhythmic energy into his own raw-edge minimalism. That ... is the reason for buying this disc."   ****

Andrew Clements - The Guardian - 28 October 2011
