Psappha: Dark Flower on Thursday 17th November 2022

This concert will last around 75 minutes with no interval, ending around 8.45pm.

Dani Howard - Ostara
Christian Drew - More Parlour Music World premiere
Linda Catlin Smith - Dark Flower UK premiere
Steven Mackey - Indigenous Instruments

Join Psappha in Hallé St. Peter’s as we open our new season with a programme that moves from high drama to delicate intimacy and back again. Dani Howard is receiving widespread acclaim for her compositions both nationally and internationally; her trio Ostara blends clarinet, cello, and piano, and continuously blurs the boundaries of timbre and attack between the three instruments.

Christian Drew's More Parlour Music combines and warps an intoxicating mixture of baroque melody and romantic harmony. It is a product of Psappha’s Composing For… schemes and receives its world premiere this evening.

The centrepiece of the programme is Linda Catlin Smith’s 2020 piano quartet, Dark Flower. Smith’s music is the product of deep and deliberate listening and folds lyricism and abstraction into an intimate and compelling sound world. We are delighted to be giving the UK premiere of this stunning piece. Steven Mackey's boisterous Indigenous Instruments closes the programme in a riot of virtuosity and instrumental colour.
