This event has been and gone.
Contemporary classical composer, performer and Hidden Orchestra member Poppy Ackroyd has won herself high acclaim with her first full-length album Resolve that sits “comfortably on par with neo-classical giants Nils Frahm, Max Richter and Hauschka” (Mojo). Wielding strings and piano with drumsticks, e-bows, picks and all five fingers on both hands Ackroyd creates intricate, delicate, and lyrical music with unusual timbres and textures, she’s undoubtably “a neo-classical force to be reckoned with” (Electronic Sound).
This is a seated Colston Hall Presents event in The Foyer at Colston Hall.
Poppy Ackroyd is a performer and composer from London who is currently based in Edinburgh. Classically trained on violin and piano, she fell in love with contemporary piano music and with the piano beyond the keys, discovering the world of sound that could be made from other parts of the instrument. Realising the violin had the same potential, she has spent the last few years composing delicate, intricate and beautifully atmospheric music by manipulating and multi-tracking sounds from these two instruments.
