Helen Grime: Piano Concerto premiere
23rd February 2017
Scored for solo piano and an ensemble of six instruments, Helen Grime describes the piece as a “mini-homage” to Elliott Carter and Pierre Boulez, two composers who strongly influenced Grime’s work and whose music is included in the programme. Also featured is Grime’s A Cold Spring, a work which was premiered by BCMG in 2009.
Preview the score:
Grime’s orchestral Two Eardley Pictures, which were premiered at the 2016 BBC Proms, have been shortlisted in the inaugural Scottish Awards for New Music. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Glasgow on March 8. Future performances include the premieres of a song cycle for Ruby Hughes and a new orchestral work for the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle in the 17/18 season.
