Near the one-year anniversary of his death, The Riot Ensemble brings  Henri Dutilleux’s Les Citations to The Forge in Camden and to the Divinity School Recital Hall at St. John’s College, Cambridge. Presented along Dutilleux’s masterwork are an array of newly-commissioned works by composers from across the globe for the same lineup of instruments (with an additional soprano in two of the works).

These new pieces will come from Jose Manuel Serrano (Argentina), Jenna Lyle (USA), Arne Gieshoff (UK), Chris Roe (UK) and Drew Schnurr (USA).  The concert will also feature Ken Hesketh’s transcription of Dutilleux’s piano piece Blackbird (1950) for Les Citations forces, Arlene Sierra’s Petite Grue, and a short piece for Doublebass and Soprano by The Riot Ensemble’s 2014 Composer in Residence Amy Beth Kirsten.

Tickets: £10/£5 are available online, and on the door.

Performers Include: Goska IsphordingRebecca CassSarah MasonCeleste Cronje and conductor Aaron Holloway-Nahum.  I’ll be conducting new works by Chris Roe and Arlene Sierra as well as Ken Hesketh’s transcription of Blackbird.
