music we’d like to hear
July 27, 2011 - performingParkinson Saunders played in the final concert of this year’s music we’d like to hear on 15 July, alongside violin duos played by Angharad Davies and Sara Hubrich. There are some nice pictures from the rehearsal taken by Markus Trunk below. Tim and I had a lovely time playing Michael Parsons’ Pentechordal Melody in a version for melodicas, pipes, and bells, as well as Christian Wolff’s Material which we realised with our normal selection of tabletop detritus. Sarah and Angharad played pieces by Jürg Frey, Chiyoko Szlavnics, and Vincenzo Gabrieli. The concert links to the project we’re involved in with the Basel Sinfonietta later in the year. They have commissioned new orchestra pieces by me, Tim, Jürg, Michael and Christian, for performance in Basel, Zurich and Huddersfield in November. There’s a nice review of the concert, and one by ELISION the same night, by Tim Rutherford-Johnson at The Rambler.
