      Sir Harrison Birtwistle turns 80 this summer. The Birmingham Contemporary Music Group celebrates with a performance of three of the composer’s classic early works. Verses for Ensembles, Dinah and Nick’s Love Song and Meridian all explore intriguing and unfamiliar textures, but never neglect the ever-unfolding melody that is the core of all Birtwistle’s music.
