Resonating Instruments is rhapsodic and volatile, entwining the ensemble around a solo cimbalom. "An absorbing work" - The Times.

Two Games and a Nocturne alternates skittish piano solos with bluesy jamboree in a work that, in Coult's own words, "does what it says on the tin" with its two playful games followed by a gently swaying night-time reverie.

In this joint concert with the BBC Philharmonic we give well-deserved second performances of two of Psappha 25th anniversary commissions.

Tickets for this performance are available from Monday 11 September

Join us in our St Michael's home for this special collaboration with Curated Place.
The centrepiece of this performance is the world premiere of Stylianos Dimou's Metallicas where acoustic sounds undergo electronic transformation resulting in the assembly of sonic twins.
Featuring emerging composers alongside established 20th century greats the programme has been curated to showcase Psappha's virtuoso musicians in an eclectic mix of music that - along with tape and electronics - explores the sonorities of each individual instrument.

Leonora Pictures takes inspiration from the fantastical characters and landscapes of Lancashire-born surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. This piece was written to showcase Psappha's virtuosic musicians.

Geranos imagines Theseus' dance after his escape from the Minotaur with music that mirrors the mazes of the Labyrinth while Wonderland celebrates the miracle of nature.The programme also features works by Mark-Anthony Turnage inspired by Led Zeppelin's guitarist and the extrovert jazz of Fats Waller.
