Two Premieres – 21st & 23rd May
Next week will see premieres of two short pieces of mine. On Monday 21st, Helen Tonge of the Rivoli String Quartet and pianist Richard Whalley will premiere ‘Limp‘ at a lunchtime recital at St. Werburgh’s Church in Manchester. The concert is part of the annual Chorlton Arts Festival, and the concert also features John Casken’s ‘Shadowed Pieces’ and music by Brahms and Beethoven.
On Wednesday, members of Trio Magritte and clarinettist Paolo Beltramini will premiere ‘Ariadne’s Thread‘, inspired by the cyclical structure of myth narratives, in the final of the Niccolò Castiglioni Prize at Milan’s Centro Culturale San Fedele. My piece will be performed alongside pieces by the other finallists, Manuel Contreras, Yair Klartag, Naomi Pinnock, Samy Moussa and Maurizio Azzan, as well as music by Berg, Webern, Schubert and Niccolò Castiglioni himself.
