Composer Portrait: Rolf Hind
Rolf Hind’s music engages with the East, and above all India, with oblique and surprising approaches to its language, philosophy and culture, from the tender and meditative to the violent and comic.
The Octandre Ensemble complete their acclaimed Way Out East Composer Portrait series at this intimate, hidden-in-plain-sight gem of a venue. Formerly a cinema, The Print Room @ The Coronet is a warmly intimate space, full of character. More commonly home to experimental theatre productions, it is a perfect, welcoming space in which to discover new music.
The Octandre Ensemble brings together an international array of talent to perform a portrait concert, with interviews from the composer to explain the stories behind the music. The evening culminates in the first ever full performance of Way Out East, featuring the mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg, saxophonist Stefan Baur, and the GB&SR piano and percussion duo.
