Malcolm Wilson piano

Laurence Jackson violin / viola

Ulrich Heinen cello

Birmingham Contemporary Music Group performs two classics of 20th-century music - Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire, premiered 100 years ago, in which the moonstruck naïf of Albert Giraud’s poems half-speaks, half-sings of love, religion, violence and homesickness; and Olivier Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time), a piece that with its grandly singing lines and gently ringing chords stops time with each performance.

BCMG is the Department of Music’s Ensemble in Association, working  with its staff and student composers in workshop settings.
