Elgar Concert Hall - Bramall Music Building
Friday 1 March 2024 (13:00-13:50)


Siwan Rhys

Barber Lunchtime Concert

Delicate, sorrowful Venetian waves lap at the edge of silence in Luigi Nono’s “... sofferte onde serene ...”, capturing friendship, loss, and echoes of grand canals. In striking stylistic contrast, the bluesy, melodic music of Ethiopian composer Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbru brims with powerful rhythms and rich harmony. Featuring the world premieres of two CrossCurrents commissions from Ben Nobuto and Laurence Crane. 

  • Nono ... sofferte onde serene ... 
  • Ben Nobuto World premiere 
  • Laurence Crane World premiere 
  • Works by Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbru.
