Norfolk And Norwich Festival 2013: Britten Sinfonia
John Adams - Shaker Loops
John Adams - Chamber Symphony
Nico Muhly - Seeing is Believing (Concerto for
Nico Muhly - Double Standard (UK premiere)
Britten Sinfonia is one of the most adventurous ensembles around. In this typically edgy programme, the orchestra and three electrifying soloists set the complex minimalism of John Adams against Nico Muhly’s cross-genre inventiveness.
The shimmering strings in Shaker Loops and the fiendish challenges of Chamber Symphony encapsulate Adams’s rich aural palette. Muhly’s Seeing is Believing blends electronic fusion and Tudor motets, while Double Standard is a visceral piece written for Colin Currie and the finalists in last year’s TROMP Percussion Competition, won by Alexandre Esperet.
Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is an Associate Ensemble at the Barbican, has residencies in Norwich, Cambridge and Brighton, and a chamber series at Wigmore Hall. Britten Sinfonia enjoys a growing international profile, and is frequently heard on disc, BBC Radio 3 and commercial radio.
'But as always with this orchestra there was more to savour than just stellar performance. The programme was ingeniously shaped' (Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph)
'The playing was marked by the kind of luminous and infectious beauty that only comes from a true marriage of mastery and love' (The Times0
'The UK's most consistently dynamic chamber ensemble' (The New Statesman).
