Project Instrumental make their JdP Series debut igniting a typically imaginative programme of the never heard before, the rarely heard and the preferably heard.
A concert for those who prefer their classical music experiences enlivening and colourful, Sunflowers & Other Sounds balances two exciting contemporary voices alongside two pre-eminences in the history of Western classical music. The world premieres of Fokkens’ neo concerto grosso-like work for string trio and string orchestra and Cutler’s new arrangement of his Music for Sunflowers for solo viola and string orchestra are bookended with Shostakovich’s youthful, avant-gardist Prelude & Scherzo for string octet and Tchaikovsky’s perennially soaring Serenade for Strings.
