Late Music Ensemble cond. James Whittle: MECHANICS OF MEDIATION
An evening of theatrical and improvisatory music inspired by Meredith Monk and celebrating her 75th birthday year with a performance of her first string quartet. LME also pays tribute to fellow American composer Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016).
Exploring the mechanics of mediation, LME’s trademark eclectic programme will feature recent new music by groundbreaking composers Kirsty Devaney, Omar Peracha, Alex Nikiporenko and Louis d’Heudieres.
LME will also premiere new works by two young composers, Rachael Gibson and Catherine Robson, devised with LME in workshops through the “devise.realise” educational project.
