Small is beautiful – exploring the miniature form in contemporary music.

James Dillon:Elements (Book One)
Judith Weir: The King of France
Schoenberg: Six Little Pieces
Schumann: Papillon
Steve Crowther: New Work
Edward Caine: New Work
Ligeti: Etudes (Book One)

Schumann’s Papillon is one of the composer’s early masterworks in miniature form: a string of short pieces dancing a ‘masked ball’. James Dillon’s The Book of Elements (One) was inspired by the piano music of late Beethoven and Schumann. These pieces are technically very demanding but also readily accessible. Schoenberg’s Six Little Pieces were written in 1911. The work represents a suite of extraordinary economy. Judith Weir’s The King of France is a set of variations on the folk tune El Rey De Francia. Judith Weir is the first female Master of the Queen’s Music, and our featured composer for the 2015 concert series.
Preconcert talk at 6.45pm plus a complimentary glass of wine.
