Kaija Saariaho    Lichtbogen

Tom Sissons    Undergraduate Commission

Chimera’s first programme of 2017/18 presents contemplative yet viscerally exciting music. Lichtbogen, inspired by the Northern Lights, seamlessly unites live electronics with nine instruments to create a work of ethereal beauty. And Drift – for sextet and electronics – also takes inspiration from the natural environment with its use of field recordings from Estonian bogs and lakes. Both are contrasted with Mark Appelbaum’s humorous Catfish for percussion trio. Also featured is a new work by one of the joint winners of the Chimera undergraduate commission.

Plus lunchtime concert 1.15pm - £2 on the door or free to Music Society members.

The Chimera Ensemble gives further concerts on 2 March and 8 June
