Jonathan Harvey’s “Death of Light, Light of Death” was inspired by Grünewald’s ‘Crucifixion’ in the Issenheim Altarpiece. Harvey wrote that the “unflinching sense of catastrophe that hangs over this picture has given it a special appeal to the sensibilities of our own time.” The Riot Ensemble returns to Brighton for the third consecutive year, to perform a concert centred around this beautiful and haunting music. Other music will include composers from the New Music Brighton composers collective, Helen Grime’s Oboe Quartet, and NMB ComposersPatrick Harrex, J.C. Clark, Peter Copley & Phil Baker.
