New music for early instruments at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2019

CFI2019_concert_posterFour works by CNM composers were included in a performance of old and new music for early instruments at Fitzwilliam College Auditorium on 15 Oct 2019 as part of Cambridge University’s Festival of Ideas. Works for recorder quartet with harpsichord by Jenni Pinnock, Peter Thorne and Stephen Watkins were performed by the Maestral Ensemble with Janet Wheeler on harpsichord, alongside pieces by Alison Willis and Janet Wheeler herself; these works were originally written for CNM’s call for scores.

The concert, narrated by Francis Knights, also included works for voices and viols by composers from Tallis and Byrd to Ivan Moody, Roy Marks and a premiere of a new work by Carl Rütti, performed by Ian de Massini and Catherine Groom (altos), Fitzwilliam College Choral Scholars, and La Dolce Gamba viol consort.
