The Royal Northern College of Music and Wigmore Hall present a day of music to celebrate the work of composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, one of the best known and most prolific British composers.
Turnage has a distinctive musical personality, with aggressive and energetic qualities contrasted with lyricism and tenderness, projected across his large catalogue of orchestral, chamber, choral and vocal works, as well as two large-scale operas. He is known for combining jazz, popular and classical elements in his music, often appealing to young audiences.
This study day features chamber music and orchestral works performed by students from the RNCM.
