Athanasia Kontou Antigone: Pure in her crime (world premiere)
Dobrinka Tabakova Fantasy Homage to Schubert
Britten Phaedra: dramatic cantata for mezzo-soprano and small orchestra
Geoffrey Paterson conductor/harpsichord
Jennifer Johnston mezzo soprano
The heroine of Britten’s Phaedra seizes control of a fearful destiny and we stay in Ancient Greece for Athanasia Kontou’s new work as Antigone confronts her own emotions. Both are perfect showcases for Liverpool Philharmonic’s current Artist in Residence through until the end of 2020, superstar mezzo-soprano, Jennifer Johnston. Geoffrey Paterson makes his Ensemble 10/10 debut.
Athanasia Kontou is winner of the 2019 Liverpool Philharmonic Christopher Brooks Composition Prize.
