Introspection // Contemplative works by Brahms, Richter, Arnalds
The programme is a combination of classical and minimalist works for violin, piano and voice, within the overall theme of introspection, featuring a premiere by composer Aran O'Grady. As performers, we hope to provide an experience for the audience which is immersive, innovative and communicative. With this in mind, we chose an intimate and informal venue in which to present a unique programme.
