Robert Ames conductor
Thelma Handy violin
Northern soul: beneath the midnight sun of Iceland, music somehow sounds different – simultaneously darker and more luminous. Certainly, the music of Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Hildur Guðnadóttir evokes new sonic worlds – though with a solo appearance from the Orchestra’s co-leader Thelma Handy and a roll-call of extraordinary young composers, there’ll be no shortage of wonder tonight. Oh, and a brand-new work – inspired by Liverpool – from 2020 Rushworth Composition Prize winner Alexander Papp. You’ll never look at Bertie and Bella, the Liverbirds on the Liver Building, the same way again…
