Posthumous new work by Theo Verbey

Theo Verbey had a close relationship with Amsterdam Sinfonietta. A large number of works was written for them and premiered by them, including Pavane oubliée (1995), Schaduw (2002) and Fractal Variations(2006).

Thanks to a recent blog post by Amsterdam Sinfonietta, we also came across a work that we had not yet published: the arrangement for string orchestra of the piano piece Une Larme by Modest Mussorgsky. According to cellist Maarten Mostert ‘Theo has arranged this splendid piano piece very beautifully. Under Lev’s direction we often played it as an encore, but after that it also featured on the programme every few years’.
