THIS CONCERT TAKES PLACE AT WILTON'S MUSIC HALL

Wilton’s Music Hall
Graces Alley
London
E1 8JB

For this concert, the group is interpreting "early" in broader ways than the common definition of Early Music. In some cases they are early works in a composer's output;  in the case of Lizee's Death to Kosmische, it's a reference to early electronic music  - and the group plays some rudimentary electronic instruments like Stylophones in the piece.  "Early" can also refer to a different mode of human existence, as in the traditional works programmed.
