Premiere of David Bremner's 'Four'
9 November 2018 07:30
On Friday 9th November Béal present the world premiere of Four in the musicroom of Christ Church Cathedral. This is a large immersive work by David Bremner on text by Irish poet Billy Mills, themed around the four seasons, told through the life cycle of a leaf.
The ensemble is Baroque flute, viola d'amore, soprano, speaker double bass, harpsichord, piano, community choir and live electronics, with video by Mihai Cucu. We would like the performance to be open to participation by the audience, so there is an accessible community choir part (who rehearse for 10 minutes in advance of each performance). Four is an opportunity to experience and take part in the premiere of an adventurous large-scale new work.
7.30 am – Winter | 10.30am – Spring | 1.30pm – Summer | 4.30pm – Autumn
