Our first instalment of Music for People went off wonderfully last night at the Southbank Centre. From the serene opening of Fratres to the atmospheric premiere of Joanna Bailie’s new piece to the quirky, joyous commission by Philip Venables and Pärt’s masterpiece Stabat Mater, all went tremendously well and we were delighted to share the stage with the incredible EXAUDI singers.
The Guardian reviewed the concert here. What a ringing endorsement for our project! We’re delighted. And we do hope that you all come back tomorrow night for the premiere of our commissions of James Weeks and Andrew Hamilton (both sounding great in rehearsal) and Morton Feldman’s stunning Clarinet Quintet.
Joanna Bailie’s commission was generously supported by the PRS for Music Foundation
