The Riot Ensemble
In association with Breathe AHR, the Riot Ensemble presents a free 1:00pm lunchtime concert at St. Thomas’ Hospital. The concert features Riot Ensemble’s co-principal percussionist Claudia Maria Racovicean who will – in collaboration with her sister, violinist Ramona Racovicean – present a concert in celebration of John William’s Birthday.
We’re extremely excited to present the UK premiere of Djuro Zivkovic’s I Shall Contemplate for soprano, flute, piano, violin and cello. This evening concert at Brasenose College, Oxford, will also feature works by J.S. Bach, Vox Balaenae by George Crumb, and Claude Debussy’s piano prelude Brouillards.
