Leonora Pictures takes inspiration from the fantastical characters and landscapes of Lancashire-born surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. This piece was written to showcase Psappha’s virtuosic musicians. Geranos imagines Theseus’ dance after his escape from the Minotaur with music that mirrors the mazes of the Labyrinth while Wonderland celebrates the miracle of nature.The programme also features works by Mark-Anthony Turnage inspired by Led Zeppelin’s guitarist and the extrovert jazz of Fats Waller.
