Shapes: New Music for Percussion
The Bradshaw Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire
Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, 200 Jennens Road, B4 7XR
Tickets must be booked in advance.
Following the blistering success of the 2020 edition, the RBC Percussion and Composition Departments join forces once again in a concert of new music for solo and ensemble percussion.
This year compositions include Maarten Benschop’s in which the rhythms of speech are retroactively turned into a drum solo for five players and set to video, Fiona Troon’s inspired by the sounds of protest, and nine other new works written for a huge array of percussion, electronics and screen.
