Psappha at St. Michael's
36-38 George Leigh Street
Manchester M4 5DG
A programme that explores the music of extremes. From Coult's skittish piano solos with bluesy jambouree to Duddell's REM-inspired Nightswimming. We travel through the complex rhythmic structures of Xenakis' Psappha to a continuous transformation of light on glinting leaves in Saariaho's Light and Matter. The title for Carter's expressive work for solo piano was suggested by 'Intermittences du Coeur', one of the chapters in Marcel Proust's novel. Hall's Advert - wedding dress reflects on the society of today through a series of hard-hitting poems by Polish writer Agnieszka Dale in a collaboration with electronic artist Mira Calix.
Please note that this performance contains strong language that some concert goers might find offensive.
