Two Poems, by 2017 RPS Composition Prize winner Manos Charalabopoulos, receives its world premiere at this year's Presteigne Music Festival in Wales.

This work for solo cello explores the possibilities of musical form and phrasing in response to the music of poetry. Poems by Homer and Shapiro have, to a lesser or greater extent, provided the scaffolding for each of the two pieces respectively.
