Posted on 31 October 2012

Rhapsody on a Windy Night posterA new collaborative project with soprano Ana Beard-Fernadez and clarinettist Will Ozard, Rhapsody on a Windy Night is a setting of T.S.Elliot’s poem of the same name by 12 York-based composers.film Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait 2017 trailer

Ana and Will asked each composer to set a small section of the poem for soprano, a clarinet (A, Bb, Eb or bass) and optional electronics. The resultant performance on 6 November 2012 will reveal the whole poem through a showcase of diverse new compositions.

I’m really looking forward to hearing the piece and how it fits in with everyone else’s sections – come down to the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall at 1pm on 6 November 2012 for the complete performance (£2 OTD).
