We were very sad to have to cancel the rest of our New Music 2020 series. Whilst we have been closed, New Music Curator Tom McKinney has been in contact with the musicians whose concerts couldn’t take place, and we’re pleased to share with you some films and music from them. We hope you can continue to enjoy New Music from home, and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Next, we are sharing music from the soprano Juliet Fraser, who was due to perform her solo album, Spilled Out From Tangles, at Kettle’s Yard as part of the New Music series.
Watch an introduction from Tom McKinney here.
