Liam Byrne
A feast of Renaissance and contemporary music performed by Stuart King (clarinet), Clare O’Connell (cello) and superstar viola da gamba player Liam Byrne, with visuals from Claire Shovelton.

More than just a concert, Awakening seamlessly weaves together music from experimental composers both ancient and modern; the gamba, cello and clarinet creating a uniquely rich sonic experience, linked by electronic episodes and enhanced by Claire Shovelton’s imagery, to immerse you in a transcendental, transformative world.

Music will include works from Nico Muhly, Pierre de la Rue, Christopher Tye and Alexander Agricola with three new CHROMA commissions from outstanding composers Freya Waley Cohen, Rubens Askenar and David Bruce.

The concert lasts approx one hour with no interval.

“And I heard a voice that said to me: If you care about the state of your soul, if you care about anything at all, if you want to continue to be a good person: Get out.” David T Little’s and the sky was still there with a film by R. Luke DuBois challenges the US army’s controversial ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy towards gay and lesbian soldiers.

The war in Bosnia ended nearly a quarter of a century ago, with the tragedy of Srebrenica. Influenced by the chiming of church bells and the Muslim call to prayer, Nigel Osborne’s Bosnian Voices is a set of songs written by ordinary Bosnians – children and adults – about their lives then and now.

Tim Wright’s sparse and tense music for a 1929 silent film by Charles Vidor tells the dramatic story of a spy sentenced to be hanged from a bridge.

Two giants of the twentieth century react to the atrocities of the second world war. Schoenberg takes his inspiration from the poetry of Byron, and writer Anthony Burgess turns to music in his heart-felt for the dead 1939-45.
