Analytic Tales of Mechanical Movement

Analytic Tales of Mechanical Movement

On Thursday April 10, double bassist Ulla Ryman will join with conductor Staffan Larson and the Uppsala Chamber Orchestra to perform Daniel Nelson’s Analytic Tales of Mechnical Movement. This concerto for double bass and string orchestra is a four movement ode to mechanical toys and other self-operating automata which move without the use of electricity, being powered instead by inner clockwork and relying on the interplay of cogs, wheels, weights and springs for their mechanical movement. For tickets and additional information, please visit Uppsala Chamber Orchestra.
