Riot Ensemble plays Illusions and Numbers 91–95

3 September 2018 - news

The Riot Ensemble is performing two pieces of mine, Illusions and Numbers 91–95, at Kings Place on Monday 17th September as part of the new ‘Luminate’ series.  It’s a semi-portrait concerto, with other composers Sarah Nemtsov, Lee Hyla and Helga Arias Parra also featured.  I’m really excited that the spoken part in Numbers 91–95 will be done by singer Sarah Dacey, from Juice Ensemble, whom I’ve known for a long while but not properly had the chance to work with.  I’ll be at the concert, and giving a short, free, pre-concert interview with Tim Rutherford-Johnson.

Tickets are available here.
