Kate Whitley premiere

The premiere of Kate’s new piece written for me, The Bells, was this week at City University. It’s inspired by William Byrd’s work of the same name and was the result of our winning the Yvar Mikhashoff Commissioning Award.

The concert also included two other works written for me: Michael Cutting’s I Am A Strange Loop V (pictured below) and Naomi Pinnock’s Lines and Spaces (which I’ll record for the Deutscher Musikrat label in a couple of weeks), as well as Georg Friedrich Haas’s Ein Schattenspiel, a piece I love to play and on which I worked with the composer.
