The Royal Northern College of Music and Wigmore Hall are delighted to present a day of music to celebrate the work of composer Sir George Benjamin. Benjamin is truly one of the musical giants of our time, composing music that must be heard live. The visceral quality of the music he creates absorbs the listener in constantly shifting layers of sound, from the startling to the touching and from the virtuosic to the beautifully simple.
Following on from performances in Manchester in January, this study day features solo, chamber and orchestral works performed by students from the RNCM.
In Partnership with the Royal Northern College of Music
Sir George Benjamin (b.1960)
