We have also commissioned works by a younger generation of composers who embody the experimental ethos, the humour, and eclecticism of Bryars’ work.
We are excited to have Mercury nominated, acclaimed jazz trumpeter Laura Jurd, and the Ivor Award-winning composer Leo Chadburn create new commissions for the series. Laura will be performing with us in Cardiff, London & Leeds.
