Date: Tues 29th January Venue: The Royal Academy of Music, Theatre
Details about this – a massive, major co-commission of composer Georg Friedrich Haas – to follow. The UK premiere will be on 29th January at the Royal Academy of Music, where we have been working with Mr. Haas and a number of students on new works.
Presented as part of the Spitalfields Music Festival, this concert showcases three eclectic and exciting Canadian composers. It includes the UK premieres of Christopher Mayo’s BEAST (originally written for Alarm Will Sound), and the rapidly upcoming Nicole Lizée’s BLACK MIDI (a co-commission with Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Avanti! and Stargaze), and a new, large ensemble version of Richard Reed Parry’s MUSIC FOR HEART AND BREATH, in which the musicians are led (in tempo) by their own heartbeats and breath.
All three composers will join us for the concert, which takes place near the waterfront across from the O2, at Trinity Buoy Wharf, a short walk from the East India (DLR) or Canning Town (Jubilee Line) stations.
