…Everyone is a Child of the Inbetween…

I first came across the music of Matthew Whiteside in 2015, when I reviewed his disc Dichroic Light [see my review]. Matthew is from Northern Ireland but now based in Glasgow and his opera Little Black Lies was performed by Scottish Opera earlier this year [see the review in The Stage]. 

The opera's librettist was the Danish poet & playwrith Helene Grøn, and as a result of conversations about the opera, whose subject is belonging, the idea for new piece arose. This is …Everyone is a Child of the Inbetween… a large scale scena for soprano and clarinet, which has been released as a single, performed by Turning the Elements (soprano Frances Cooper and clarinet Joanna Nicholson) who premiered the piece in October 2018..



The piece is also available on Apple Music and Spotify, if you wish to support Matthew please do access it on one of these platforms:
