Britten Sinfonia - Adams and Muhly

Britten Sinfonia - Adams and Muhly

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 19:30

Rhythms, loops and electronic fusions combine in this programme celebrating American minimalism and cross-genre inventiveness. Showcasing his highly musical and energetic style, percussionist Colin Currie performs the UK première of Nico Muhly’s Double Percussion Concerto. Muhly’s concerto for electric violin Seeing is Believing is also a showcase for its dedicatee, Britten Sinfonia leader, Thomas Gould. Opening the concert is John Adams’s rippling Shaker Loops and flamboyant, cartoon music inspired Chamber Symphony.
