Ensemble Offspring

April 8, 2013 @ 6:30 pm

Ensemble Offspring’s favourite UK composers, Christopher Fox, Laurence Crane, Jennifer Walshe, Bryn Harrison and Matthew Shlomowitz headline this playful look at music in Britain in the 21st century. Crane and Harrison’s reflective and expansive textures are set against what can only be described as crazy performance art in a truly fresh world premiere by Jennifer Walshe and an Aussie premiere from Shlomowitz in the form of his latest theatrical Letter Piece. Fox’s classic Reeling rounds out this memorable one hour program all about movement, theatre, music and fun.

“Ensemble Offspring speak well and succinctly, providing commentary on each piece before playing it…The program was a welcome introduction to a subtle and beautiful body of work.” Full article here
