Wege & Waldstille, for clarinet, percussion, piano, cello and electronics, will be premièred by the fantastic Psappha at 17:00 on Friday 30 April in the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall at the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama. These guys really know how to play and it’s been an absolute pleasure hearing them rehearse, so come along! The concert also features works by other University of Manchester postgraduate composers (almost all world premières) — Soojung Park’s Looking over the Land, Josh Kopeček’s the warrior fallen, Mauricio Pauly’s La Prisa Educable and Yvonne Eccles’s Multiple Infections.
Chris Swithinbank is a British-Dutch composer who works with both acoustic instruments and electronic sounds. He is currently a student at Harvard University with Chaya Czernowin.
