UKARIA 24 (WEEKEND PASS)

Friday 16–Sunday 18 October 2020

CURATED BY LAWRENCE POWER

‘It’s always a great privilege being invited to share one’s musical interests and passions – especially in such a creative and inspiring environment as UKARIA.

When I came here for the first time in 2018 I was taken by the desire to present music in a fresh and interesting way.

As a musician I am fascinated by the way in which old and new can coexist together. One of the many reasons I perform new music and work with composers so much is that it gives me a freedom when returning to the classical repertoire. When dealing with a new score for the first time one is forced to react honestly to the main building blocks of music – rhythm and harmony – without any influence of past traditions. Isn’t this the greatest challenge to us when dealing with Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and all the great composers of the past, to react to their extraordinary scores as if for the first time?

The program for these few days takes us all on a journey from one of the greatest seventeenth-century musical innovators, Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, through to the current day with contemporary voices such as Luciano Berio and George Benjamin. I’m also honoured to present the premiere of a work written for me by Thomas Adès, one of today’s most important composers, generously commissioned by UKARIA.

I am so looking forward to exploring this fascinating program with you.’
