Summer-Autumn 2021

After numerous concerts in the UK during the Spring we were fortunate to be able to resume overseas touring during August, performing our Gesualdo programme Cruel Ecstasy at the Kölner Philharmonie with a new commission from Sylvia Lim, and moving on to our third residency since 2016 at the Voix Nouvelles academy at Abbaye de Royaumont, France. As always, it was wonderful to work with the international roster of extremely talented emerging composers at Voix Nouvelles, as well as with Ensemble Linéa and director Jean-Philippe Wurtz – the ideal antidote to almost two years of absence from Europe.

EXAUDI Musicon recording

Later in the Autumn we begin preparations for our 20th anniversary season in 2022 with a series of workshops and studio recordings, working with Chiyoko Szlavnics, Christopher Fox and others. We also visit Paris in October for a special performance of Boulez’ cummings ist der dichter with Ensemble InterContemporain, and appear at London’s Listenpony series with new works from William Marsey and Louise Drewett.

We hope to see you at a concert soon!
