Our 20th anniversary season begins with a spate of concerts and premieres in April and May.
We continue our Gesualdo madrigal strand with appearances at de Bijloke (Ghent), L’Auditori (Barcelona) and Norfolk and Norwich Festival. We’re excited to premiere new works by Sylvia Lim, Joanna Ward and Simone Corti alongside Gesualdo, adding to our collection of contemporary responses to this most provocative and disturbing of composers.
We also revisit the Wittener Tage für Neue Kammermusik, presenting 3 new commissions by Chiyoko Szlavnics, Naomi Pinnock and Mikel Urquiza – good timing, as Naomi and Mikel have just shared the prestigious Siemens Composers Prize 2022! (and Chiyoko is a wonderful composer with whom we’ve wanted to work for many years…)
Equally anticipated is the programme for EXPOSURE2022, our annual festival of new vocal work at the Guildhall in London. This year we bring some Covid-delayed premieres – Simone Corti‘s Three Madrigals and Josh Levine‘s ravishing Cicada June | Geheimlicht – as well as the UK premiere of Sylvia Lim‘s burst flood wound.
We’re indebted to RVW Trust for its support of this concert.
Alongside our live activities we’ve also been busy in the recording studio, with upcoming releases by Christopher Fox, James Weeks and Kevin Raftery, and we will be recording the music of Jürg Frey over the Summer for 2024 release.

We hope to see you at a concert soon!
