The Nash Ensemble’s annual contemporary music showcase features six works by Sir Harrison Birtwistle, with whom the group has enjoyed a long and close association. In addition to two earlier Nash commissions, Fantasia upon all the notes and The Woman and the Hare, they include a new Duo specifically written for the Nash’s violist Lawrence Power and cellist Adrian Brendel. The programme also takes in Elliott Carter’s Mosaic, inspired by memories of the pioneering harpist Carlos Salzedo, and a newly revised piece for solo bassoon by the late Oliver Knussen, originally written as a study for a large-scale project based on the writings of Kafka. Stefan Asbury conducts the ensemble works and the solo soprano is the Nash’s frequent and welcome guest, Claire Booth.
