The final concert of Octandre's residency at the Print Room at The Coronet, Notting Hall, takes place on Sunday 30 September 2018 when they are presenting a composer portrait of Rolf Hind. There will be an interview with Hind, and performances of four of his chamber works culminating in the first ever complete performance of Way Out East three chamber pieces for stage for voice, saxophone, percussion and piano. The concert will feature mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg, saxophonist Stefan Baur, and the GB&SR piano and percussion duo.

The Octandre ensemble, artistic directors Jon Hargreaves & Christian Mason, focuses on music written after 1945, with an emphasis on timbre and ritual. Sound is an eternally fascinating phenomenon, and music can harness its power in ever more original ways: new music, ancient ideas. The ensemble's previous event at the Print Room was a composer portrait of Nicola Lefanu, and you can see a highlight on Vimeo.
