Post-concert miniatures

After the main concert on 3rd June there will be a post-concert event featuring a selection of miniatures originally written for the accordion by the British experimental composer Howard Skempton. Members of the London Sinfonietta Collective (Alex Cook, Daniel Harle, Laura Jayne Bowler and Stephen Mark Barchan) have created orchestrated versions of these pieces, which the Azalea Ensemble (conducted by Stephen Mark Barchan) will perform on the stage in the QEH foyer. The miniatures that will be presented - One for the Road, Yes, yes, Annette, Deeply shaded, Berkley Street and Pendulum - have been written at various points during the last thirty years. This will be an opportunity to hear both the original pieces (performed by accordionist Amadej Herzog) echoed by the orchestrated versions for large ensemble, along with Stephen Mark Barchan's Always Together - a homophonic chorale dedicated to Howard Skempton.
