In this performance we explore the many different relationships that spring from artistic collaborations.
At the heart of all of Psappha’s work is the relationship between composer and performer. For the last 27 years we have worked with composers from across the world to realise their ideas and concepts. This intimate programme showcases music from the next generation of composers, with our pick of works from Psappha’s talent development schemes. We have paired these brand new works with brilliant music by internationally renowned composers.
We also recognise the enormous contribution Peter Maxwell Davies made to Psappha as our Patron for more than 20 years and we look forward to a new phase in our history with Mark-Anthony Turnage as Patron.
