A platform for student performers to showcase new works by undergraduate and postgraduate composers, alongside a wide and eclectic range of 'classic' works by the leading composers of our times.
The voice of a city, the voice of a child…
Edgard Varèse Intégrales
Igor Stravinsky Symphonies of Wind Instruments (1947)
Claude Vivier Lonely Child
Igor Stravinsky Renard
Joshua Brown Shedding Picking Beating (world première)
Conductors: Mark Heron, Jack Sheen & Elspeth Slorach
Edgard Varèse, in jazz-age New York, heard the blare, the energy and the conflict, and integrated it. Claude Vivier, half a century later, expresses himself as a child in a dream world of shining harmonies.
Half a century later again, Joshua Brown adds his own voice.
Plus Stravinsky: a crazy-funny farmyard fable and wind instruments chanting out of the distant past.
Concessions: £5 / £3
