Magnard Ensemble: Jibun

6 February @ 18:00 - 20:00

£5.50

PROGRAMME
Pavel HAAS: Wind Quintet Op. 10
Traditional Japanese Nagauta Shamisen performance
Tonia KO World Premiere

What changes did Lockdown 2020 bring to your life? Do you think and feel like a different person from your pre-pandemic self? How important are our identities and what shapes them? This contemporary classical music project was born out of these questions, particularly from a British East Asian point of view, in response to the sharp increase in hate crime against people of East and South East Asian heritage at the start of the pandemic.

This relaxed performance will be the world premiere of a brand new work for wind quintet by the London based American composer Tonia Ko, commissioned by Magnard Ensemble with support from PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music Award and Haworth Trust. The event will also feature a Japanese traditional instrument, Shamisen, performed by Dr Yui Shikakura.
