Encore: Philip Cashian

RNCM Concert Hall, Manchester M13 9RD

Event Price: Free admission

As part of the RPS Encore project, Philip Cashian's String Quartet is set to new choreography performed by dancers from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance. Cashian's quartet, described in the New York Times as 'agile, imaginiate and light-filled', is performed tonight by the Zelkova Quartet. It was selected to be part of the Encore scheme, run by the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3, which gives repeat performances and broadcasts of works by living British composers which otherwise might be lost from view. Also performed tonight is Cashian's piano quartet Music for the Night Sky, featuring pianist Jung Ouyang.
