...exploring music's labyrinths...
Hear the excellent young Theseus Ensemble perform works by major living composers in a programme supported by the Susan Bradshaw Composers Fund:Alexander Goehr
- Lyric Pieces Elliott Carter
- Triple Duo
The Theseus Ensemble is dedicated to the exploration of the labyrinths of modern music, and to sharing their discoveries with audiences. Their performances focuses on challenging works of the late 20th and 21st centuries, and with thoughtful programming and approachable presentation they aim to illuminate the sometimes forbiddingly labyrinthine complexities of this repertoire, while drawing connections between music and other areas of the arts, science and nature.
The ensemble comprises some of the UK’s leading young professional instrumentalists, many of whom work regularly with the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
