Gerald Barry, Matthew McDonald and Jonathan Kelly in conversation

Bringing a world premiere to the stage is an exciting process: while notation first becomes sound, effects can still be tweaked and practicalities arranged. We accompanied first principal bass Matthew McDonald and composer Gerald Barry as they worked on a new double bass concerto. Why the bass suddenly becomes a mole in the process is revealed in the conversation with the Philharmoniker’s principal oboe Jonathan Kelly.
