The Braid Ensemble in Highgate
A programme of hauntingly beautiful work by their founder – the widely-acclaimed composer David Braid.
David’s work – described as “very honest stuff” by Steve Reich – has wide popular appeal, while also holding the fascination of musicians/music lovers across the genres. His music is lyrical, concise and instantly recognisable.
Braid is a true original that stands entirely outside both mainstream modernism and populism; his music stays with you long after hearing it, while always leaving you wanting more.
