LSO Soundhub Showcase
The inspirations behind these four new pieces are as varied as the experiences and voices of their creators: Northern Ireland’s parade culture, relationships and gatherings, murder ballads, the contour of quiet waves near a shore …
Expect raw energy and utter tranquillity, exhilaration and pathos, and come with the curiosity to experience much more in between. This is never-before-heard music from composers of the here and now – how to listen and respond, only you can say.
These new works were conceived in October 2019 by composers on Phase I of LSO Discovery’s Soundhub scheme, initially imagined for a first performance in June 2020. After 15 unprecedented months of development, change and discovery, we’re delighted to share this music from Anselm McDonnell, Clare Elton, Ryan Latimer and Ruaidhrí Mannion for the very first time.
