Adrian Brown – anglo concertina and Susanna Borsch – recorder is a duo formed to explore the dance music and songs of the period 1550-1750. Their current interest lies with the rich repertoire of 17th century English tune books and broadside ballads, which they feel, form a bridge between ‘art’ and ‘folk’ music.
Also featuring our very own Saskia Lankhoorn who will play three new arrangements of works by Kate Moore.
April 18, 2013
Trio Scordatura from Amsterdam presents premieres of works by composers Anton Lukoszevieze, Christopher Fox and Marc Sabat, interspersed with a new piece by composer/clarinettist Carol Robinson. The works offer a meditation on landscape and memory, with evocative sonorities and innovatory harmonies. Lukoszevieze’s Transmission draws inspiration from the melodies and landscapes of Lithuania. Fox’s The Dark Roads is a meditation on the lives and stories of Irish diaspora workers who built the motorways in England. Sabat’s composition offers a haunting evocation of an imaginary, timeless landscape. Robinson’s sound world is one of delicate beauty, with acoustic sounds joining hands with state-of-the-art technology.
May 16, 2013: Doomsday Prophet
This concert will feature two sets by cutting edge performer composer improvisers Keir Neuringer and Barbara Ellison who defy categorization and blur the boundary between sight and sound. Keir Neuringer has been called a “drum-pounding prophet of doom, keyboard playing last poet and sax marathonist” whose “percussive riffs and musical spitfire sermons disrupt neurons and reorient thinking – and hit the gut.”
Fundamental to Barbara Ellison’s art is an attraction to the physicality and
multi-dimensionality of sound in and of itself. She has composed for many diverse settings and setups, which have involved live performers, amplified objects, electronics, DSP processing/synthesis or ‘prepared’ instruments in various configurations.
June 20, 2013: Pierrot Lunaire
The last concert of the series will be a grand celebration featuring seminal work ‘Pierrot Lunaire’ by patriarch composer Arnold Schoenberg performed by Bloedrood, an ensemble formed especially to perform the piece.
We have invited multi-talented multi-media performer/ artist and experimental vocalist Stephanie Pan to see the season close with a spectacular set featuring Taiko Drum alongside electro violinist pair Alison Isadora and Jan Bas Bollen.
