Sense (Music on the Mind)

How does limiting our senses change how we experience music? The Ligeti Quartet examine ‘sense’ in the first instalment of a series of concerts exploring music and the brain.

Be immersed in pitch darkness for an intense perceptual experience with music by Georg Friedrich Haas. Explore deeply personal dialogues between composer/singer/writer/TV personality Kerry Andrew and her experiences of hearing in the world premiere of tInNiTuS sOnGs. To see is as much as to hear in music by Helmut Lachenmann where the string quartet is reduced to raw materials of wood, metal, string, and hair.

We're thrilled that Kerry Andrew will be joining us in the performance of tInNiTuS sOnGs for this concert.

A Child's Christmas in Wales, and other stories

With narrator Matthew Bulgo

A festive fairytale treat for all the family, A Child’s Christmas in Wales chronicles Dylan Thomas's own childhood memories and remains one of his most popular and loved works.

In this wonderful adaptation for strings, step into December days ‘as white as Lapland’, where mischief is easily found, snowballs are hurled, and the curious grownups are shrewdly observed.
