2 July 2020

 

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 pianist Philip Thomas, who was due to perform at Kettle’s Yard in April 2020. Watch an introduction from Tom McKinney here.

Palais De Mari (1986) by Morton Feldman

Philip Thomas and Allison Cameron

Kettle’s Yard commissioned a new solo piano work from the Canadian composer Allison Cameron which Philip had programmed for his concert with us.

Listen to “3rds 4ths and 5ths”, a track form Allison’s album “Gossamer Bit” with the ensemble Contact.

Philip Thomas and Bryn Harrison

The Spring 2020 New Music season began with a memorable performance of the music of Bryn Harrison by Aisha Orazbayeva, violin and Mark Knoop, piano.

Philip has also performed many of Bryn Harrison’s works, including the Piano Quintet, which requires a staggering level of concentration and stamina. This is the first performance in Montreal in 2017 with the Bozzini Quartet.

Lockdown Videos

During lockdown Philip Thomas has been performing pieces from the Keyboard Miscellany by Christian Wolff, extracts of which he was due to play at Kettle’s Yard.

All of Philip’s lockdown videos recorded at home can be found here.

Philip Thomas and Christopher Fox

Philip had also programmed a recent work by Christopher Fox, a composer he’s worked closely with for many years. Christopher’s music often obsessively explores the most simple of ideas, which always lead to surprising results, brilliantly exemplified in “at the edge of time”, which Philip recorded in 2014.
