Harrison Birtwistle     Bach Measures

Bach is honoured in the open and closing works of this programme by two giants of the 20th century: his incomplete Contrapuntus XIX gradually closes with Berio’s completion; Birtwistle’s work is an orchestration of eight chorale preludes with a few twists! The magnificent piano concerto by Mozart features PhD student Marianna Cortesi, and finalist Philippa Booth plays one of the most popular pieces in the repertoire.
