Clancy Recording

We had a great time working with New Dots last month; you can check out some reviews of the gig on their website. Documentation stuff all come in now so going to put up a few posts in next month or so.

First up we have the recording of ‘Seven Lines of Music Slow Down and Eventually Stop’ by our Composer-in-Association Seán Clancy. It was really great working with Seán and we are looking forward to playing this piece again and many more of his works in the future…!

Review of Sounds New 2012 and Latimer Recording

You can read a review of our Sounds New gig by Daniel Harding at the Sounds New blog.
Comments include:

‘Saxophonist Ellie Steemson demonstrated superb control of her performance [of Turnage’s Two Elegies Framing A Shout], delivered with conviction and commitment and consummate lyrical skill.’

‘A fascinating programme, delivered with real accomplishment by youthful former members of the Guildhall School. Expect to hear more from them…’

Thanks Daniel, and also to Sounds New for having us!

 

Here is a recording of our Sounds New performance of Ryan Latimer’s new piece for you to feast your ears on:
