23 January 2020, 8pm (doors at 7.30pm)

The opening concert of this season includes a major work by one of Britain’s most intriguing composers. Bryn Harrison’s music is an everchanging texture built from beautiful shards of flickering sound, reminiscent of Morton Feldman, his main influence, whose own works were often inspired by the mesmerising patterns of Persian carpets. Simplicity is also at the heart of the Canadian Linda Catlin Smith’s music, and with Aisha Orazbayeva and Mark Knoop, we have two towering musicians who perform these pieces with robust commitment but immaculate delicacy.

Aisha and Mark have both recorded extensively; together their recordings of Bryn Harrison and Morton Feldman have received critical acclaim including a Diapason d’or review for Feldman’s ‘For John Cage’ (ATD1).
