Skempton Only the Sound Remains for solo viola and ensemble

Thallein Ensemble performs Howard Skempton's mesmeric, extended work for viola and ensemble, Only the Sound Remains, which was written in 2010 for Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. Joining them as soloist for this performance is Rose Redgrave, Visiting Tutor in viola at RBC.

Complementing the programme, we have three world premières from composers from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire; Singapore-based doctoral researcher, Adeline Wong, and Undergraduate students, George Easton and Joe Webb.

"Taking its title from the first line in Edward Thomas’s poem ‘The Mill-Water’, Only the Sound Remains for viola and ensemble creates a compelling, idiosyncratic musical realm, the bubble only bursting with its unexpected conclusion"

Running time approx. one hour with no interval.
