Not just new music…
but a new instrument!
Chris has developed a radical new oboe designed specifically for the performance of 21st century repertoire. This will be the first complete recital on the new instrument.
Central to the recital is a new work by Richard Barrett commissioned by Redgate (with funding from the AHRC) for the new instrument. This edgy new work explores many aspects of the new instrument and is driven by a powerful extreme virtuosity. No technical stone is left unturned as Barrett puts the new instrument and the performer through their paces as he explores new and uncharted territories. Music by some of the other most exciting composers working today completes the programme.
Outrageous, action-packed pieces…
