A fabulous week of collaboration – huge privilege to work with the fantastic New London Chamber Choir, conductors Clement Power and Aidan Oliver, and of course my friends from the Kreutzer Quartet, Peter Sheppard Skaerved, Neil Heyde and Morgan Goff.  This inspiring project was made possible by Minjas Zugik, whose generosity and vision are rare.  Here are a few more photos that capture the atmosphere from the day of the concert (10th March at Wilton’s Music Hall, London) and the recording session of my piece Chetiri, written for this event, that followed (16th March at All Saints Church Tooting, London):

February 7, 2013


The pioneering New London Chamber Choir (NLCC) joins Wilton’s Music Hall’s resident Kreutzer Quartet for a concert of new music from Macedonia.  Both groups have strong links with the country’s contemporary music scene, having recently performed at the Days of Macedonian Music festival and premiered a number of works dedicated to them; NLCC and Peter Sheppard Skaerved are both recipients of the Georgi Bozikov Award for outstanding performances of Macedonian music.  This programme highlights different strands and colours through the works of several prominent younger generation composers and includes four world premieres.
