Icebreaker ensemble @ Kings Place London

8 October, London, King’s Place

“Younger composers with talent and attitude are redefining music, and foremost amongst them an ever greater number of women – and this is being celebrated in Icebreaker’s new programme featuring music by six fantastic, free, unrepressed, uncategorisable women composers of the new generation.

The exciting programme features Kate Moore’s prize-winning The Dam, a set of three pieces by Jobina Tinnemans, whose work includes music for table tennis players and hedge shearers, a rhythmic, folk-tinged piece by You Are Wolf’s Kerry Andrew, American Elizabeth Kelly’s wonderfully warped avant-jazz/funk On Edge, Linda Buckley’s exquisite, soaring Azure, plus Anna Meredith’s Orlok andNautilus from her surging, joyful Moshi Moshi EP’s.” – King’s Place, London

Icebreaker ensemble premiere’s my latest triptych of works

The premiere concert of Icebreaker‘s ‘System Restart’ tour went great last Wednesday! Being famous for it, the Icebreaker ensemble performed solidly with verve and emotion. It was the first time I heard all the works together, a two hour programme of immersive music. I have been attending several high profile Contemporary Classical festivals across Europe last few years with the usual demographic and here is a concert of non-pretentious, adventurous music. Music that doesn’t underestimate its own audience by faffing about in the name of concept. Music with balls. Music that takes you to places. #SystemRestartTour

All dates, more TBA

22 February, Nottingham Lakeside Arts
2 March, Guildford International Festival
4 March, Reading Arts, South St Arts Centre
