Sounds of Now: Psappha
Music in the Round’s new Sounds of Now music series continues in April when musicians from Psappha perform intoxicating works for eclectic instruments including tuned plant pots and the hypnotic cimbalom, an instrument at the heart of Hungarian folk music.
Since their first performance three decades ago, the musicians of Psappha have become a vital presence in this country’s new music scene. In their Music in the Round debut, these outstanding musicians will also perform Harrison Birtwistle’s The Axe Manual, an extraordinary musical battle that pits the piano against an enormous range of percussion, and a beguiling, ethereal recent work by Joanna Ward for solo cello.
