Tchaikovsky and Nielsen

For the spring concert of the Utrechtsch Studenten Concert (Utrecht Student Orchestra) I designed the promotion material. The program includes the fifth symphony by Nielsen and the sixth symphony by Tchaikovsky, the latter of which being surrounded in controversy and speculations around Tchaikovsky’s death.

The visual consists of Tchaikovsky’s death mask, surrounded by rocks resembling the material used for the mask. As if the mask is floating in a timeless and weightless space, just like his last symphony contains everything Tchaikovsky wanted to say, and yet there’s no definite answer to what he was actually saying.
