A concert jam-packed with new music from new composers. More than 150 composers from 14 countries applied to the Riot Ensemble’s 2015 Call for Scores.Three composers –Thanasis Deligiannis, Jessica Rudman & Patricia Alessandrini were chosen by Riot’s musicians to write new works for this concert. We also perform a brand-new work by Jose Manuel Serrano (our 2015 composer-in-residence), give the UK premiere of Amy BethKirsten’s beguiling L’ange Pâle and premiere a virtuosic harpsichord solo from Drew Schnurr.
Our 2015 Call for Scores received 151 applications from composers all over the world. It has been a pleasure to get to know so much new music, being made by such inspiring and exciting artists. We are extremely proud to announce the composers we’ll be collaborating with for our 20th November concert, this year.
Thanasis Deligiannis will write a new piece for soprano, flute, 2 percussionists and harpsichord. Thanasis is a Greek composer living and working in Amsterdam.
