Featured Instrument – Viola
Borough New Music Series 11 introduces an all-female programme from the wonderful violist Katherine Clarke, performing alongside the wizard pianist Ben Smith. This programme includes a world premiere by Sadie Harrison, written especially for Katherine Clarke, which explores viola with voice – a combination that Clarke has already presented in a series of recitals in 2017-18. This is complemented by works by Tann, Tabakova and the American composer Amanda Harberg.
