    IN FOCUS: THEA MUSGRAVE

    "It is a huge privilege to welcome the great Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave in this, her 90th year. For over six decades, her beautifully crafted music has resonated with audiences from around the world including France and its great cultural centre, Paris, where Thea studied with the legendary Nadia Boulanger."

    - Clark Rundell artistic director.

    Rich and powerful musical language and a strong sense of drama have made Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave one of the most respected and exciting contemporary composers in the Western world and this evening's celebration of Thea Musgrave’s work includes the world premiere of From Darkness into the Light.
