Tom Harrold - New Work (World première)*
Berio - Naturale
Boulez - Le Marteau sans maître
Jamie Phillips – conductor
Meaning The Hammer Without a Master, Boulez’ iconic work is a classic of the twentieth century whose sonority and sense of time and direction were profoundly influenced by music from Asia and Africa. Rising star Tom Harrold’s new work has been commissioned by Psappha to complement the Boulez.
Berio’s Naturale pairs live musicians with recordings of Sicilian street vendors highlighting the contrast between flowing folk melodies and the raw, natural voice of the street singer. Takemitsu’s Towards the Sea recalls the ebb and flow of the ocean and was commissioned by the Greenpeace Foundation for their Save the Whale campaign.
