Join us for this special New Music concert to celebrate 30 years of Psappha.

Tim Williams – percussion; Ben Powell – piano; Jennifer Langridge – cello; Conrad Marshall – flute 

Since their first performance three decades ago, the musicians of Psappha have become a vital presence in this country’s New Music scene. Tonight these outstanding musicians will perform The Axe Manual by Harrison Birtwistle – an extraordinary musical battle that pits the piano against an enormous range of percussion. That will be framed by Ninfea Cruttwell-Reade’s beautiful Etudes for tuned plant pots (yes, you read that correctly) and a hypnotising ethereal new work by Joanna Ward for solo cello. Finally, we’ll get a rare chance to hear the Hungarian cimbalom brought into the unique sound world of Simon Holt, as part of a major new piece.
