840: New Music for Viola and Cello
7.30pm, 7 July 2018 at the St James', Islington
840 presented an evening of new music for viola and cello, performed by Jennifer Ames Alexander and Colin Alexander (Tre Voci). Showcasing the versatility of this duet, the programme featured intimate, resonant pieces from Eva-Maria Houben (Wandelweiser) and Marc Sabat alongside brand-new works from Colin Alexander, James Luff and Alex Nikiporenko.
The concert also featured work by two wonderful Irish composers, with a piece from Amanda Feery in which disjointed fragments replace seamless transitions, and a newly-composed work from Garrett Sholdice (Ergodos), known for writing music of ‘exquisite delicacy’ (The Irish Times).
