Michel van der Aa is one of the most outstanding Dutch composers of his generation. His music has expressive power and an idiomatic sense for the stage, combining sounds and scenic images in a play of changing perspectives.
Michael Van der Aa’s The Book of Disquiet transforms Fernando Pessoa’s collection of dream vignettes and autobiographical anecdotes into a hypnotic work that mixes spoken word, performed by Samuel West, with music, electronics and video, probing the true nature of the ever-elusive self.
