LSO Discovery Jerwood Composer+ Showcase

An evening of contemporary chamber music around the themes of protection, entrapment, physicality and autonomy, curated by Rufus Isabel Elliot.

Entering the room, Coastal Inversions by Swedish-Finnish sound artist Marja Ahti immediately takes us to another place, a sonic scene vibrating all around us, widening our sense of what’s inside and what’s out.

Liza Lim’s Amulet provides music for protection, keeping us safe for the journey into our imagination that is about to follow. Kurt Cobain sings us a dark folk story, torn apart and reformed by Cassandra Miller – performed by violinist Mira Benjamin, the piece’s dedicatee.

Quiet and reflective, James Weeks’ winterærc is a gentle duet between violin and viola, holding together the instruments’ co-operation and freedom. The evening finishes with a new work by Rufus Isabel Elliot; returning to Greek mythology, it explores the image of Daphne running through the forest.

This performance will finish at approximately 8.45pm
