Premiere

My Elegy for baritone, piano and strings is to be premiered by the London Schubert Players (Artistic Director: Anda Anastasescu) on August 27th at St. Botolph's Church, Trunch, Norfolk as part of a concert which mixes chamber music from the classic tradition with contemporary works. The concert includes Mozart's String Quintet in G minor along with contemporary music by Sviatlana Rynkova (Belarus), Michael Cretu (Romania). More information here.

The Elegy sets the opening stanzas of Rilke's 2nd Duino Elegy and is a radical re-working of material from the complete setting of the Elegy, for baritone and orchestra, which was premiered in 2006 by David Greiner and the Salomon Orchestra under Adrian Brown.
