Charity premieres: new works by Roxanna Panufnik and Paul Mealor in events raising money for musical charities

Composers Roxanna Panufnik and Paul Mealor have premieres happening on-line in the forthcoming weeks, in events raising money for musical charities.

On Monday 20 July 2020 the Sacconi Quartet is giving the premiere of Panufnik's new string quartet Heartfelt, which takes its inspiration from an 18th century Uzbek court musician’s pulse rate and a Bulgarian dancing bear’s heartbeat. Also in the programme will be her 2000 song-cycle, Private Joe (for which the quartet is joined by baritone Roderick Williams), a work which explores the story of a World War I soldier, plus two of her smaller pieces, the Ashkenazi-inspired viola solo Canto and Eastern European gypsy themed Hora Bessarabia, for violin and double bass (Andrew Marshall). Donations (https://www.paypal.me/sacconiquartet) will go to the Royal Society of Musicians

The choral scholars of Cathedrals in the South-West have got together to raise money for the Cathedral Choirs Emergency Fund, and they are putting together an on-line Evensong for Tuesday 28 July, for which Panufnik has written a new anthem, Let All the World, and Paul Mealor has written a new tintroit, and there will also be music by Dupré, Frack and Whitlock. Further details from the JustGiving page.
