Good and evil, light and dark, eternal conflicts and righteous struggles. Enlightenment will be an evening which mixes exciting new music repertoire with responses and new composition from the best emerging composers. We're thrilled to be working with the Ligeti Quartet again in a programme that includes Black Angels by George Crumb, a new commission by Tom Green in response to the Crumb and a new work by Anna Meredith. It'll also feature 2 past dots composers, Bill Dougherty and Ji Sun Yang and Black Church by Wadada Leo Smith.
The concert will be in late May and there will be a public workshop in early March
With the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland this year, we're working with Octandre to create a programme inspired by Alice. 3 emerging composers: Kim Ashton, Darren Bloom and Lisa Illean will be curating the evening which will include new works as well as existing repertoire - all designed to evoke and respond to themes and ideas in Lewis Carroll’s classic fantasy. Expect surprises, tangents and curious encounters…
The concert will be in early November
More than just music
At every New Dots event you can stay to discuss what you've heard over a drink with the composers and performers, or just relax with friends in the bar
