Event description

Description

This evening is part of the RNCM ‘In Focus’ series, embracing the work of living composers.

Forget what you thought you knew about orchestral concerts; this new and innovative series requests that you DO turn on your mobile phones and tablets.

The BBC Philharmonic, in partnership with the University of Salford, will be exploring new and rarely performed pieces – bringing audience immersion and new technology to the forefront.

The sessions will be featured in an enhanced live stream on the orchestra’s website, which enables the audience to explore the orchestra, receive synced information about the music and even view a live orchestral score.

Bring your devices and help us explore a new way of experiencing an orchestra.

This evening:

Join us for a performance of works by Tansy Davies, alongside a Q&A with the composer.

Tansy Davies is one of the freshest and most innovative voices in British composition, and this programme presents five of her works for strings from the last decade; featuring unearthly sounds and dramatic changes of light.

Davies’ music draws a lot of inspiration from architecture, often using the orchestra to build her structures - and it is this way of thinking that creates new worlds, bridging contemporary idioms such as jazz and rock.

BRING YOUR TABLET
You are invited to log onto the BBC Philharmonic website on your tablet or phone during the first half of the performance, to explore synced information, a live scrolling score and biography information about the artists.

The Red Brick Sessions are brought to you in partnership between the BBC Philharmonic, the University of Salford, Salford City Council and BBC Research & Development.
