Description

Conductor Dan Watson

Stuart Stevens Inner Ring
Stuart Stevens All About and to a Female Artist

All About and to a Female Artist is a highly engaging music-theatre work that combines the personal stories of a working-class heroine (Shelagh Delaney) with some of the most virtuosic music recently written. It is Stuart Stevens's masterpiece, which he realised a few months before his sudden death in February 2016.

The work was written entirely using 31-tone equal temperament to create new harmony, melody and texture, immersive soundscapes mixed with dramatic speech producing a music-theatre-opera mix.

This melodrama creates ordinary people's lives, which is also an enduring legacy of Delaney's 'Kitchen Sink Realism' writing style.
