About this event
Linked Ophelia pieces by Oliver Knussen, 60 this year, follow Alexander Goehr’s reflection on Bach’s compositional procedures, which Knussen himself premiered, wearing his conductor’s hat.
Also born in 1952, Simon Bainbridge has developed a darker, less mercurial kind of idiom. Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s extraordinary triptych, his eagerly awaited new work is a labyrinthine journey featuring mezzo-soprano and counter-tenor.
