I’ve been hard at work on a new piano trio for members of the Britten Sinfonia – they’ll be performing it this week at three lunchtime concerts in Cambridge, London and Norwich:
Tuesday 23rd January, 1pm, West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge
Wednesday 24th January, 1pm, Wigmore Hall, London
Friday 26th January, 1pm, St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich
It’s called Five Loops for the Bathyscaphe, and features scientific ocean words and elliptical descriptions of the first journey to the deepest part of the sea, spoken by disembodied voices (mine and that of the wonderful actor Gemma Saunders). And watery music.
