Paul Mealor's The Farthest Shore headlines a concert of New Music
Following sell-out performances in England, Scotland and Wales last year, The Farthest Shore, Mealor’s moving & spectacular 40-minute oratorio for choir, brass, organ, children’s choir & soloists, returns to London. Cast upon an unforgiving shore during a terrible storm, a stranger weaves an unfathomable spell over the inhabitants of a small village… This remarkable tale spawned a fireside Celtic Legend.
The Farthest Shore, commissioned by JAM last year, is joined by another commission, Phillip Cooke’s The Hazel Wood, plus 5 works submitted to JAM in its recent Call for Music by: Michael Bonaventure, William Cole, Will Handysides, Daniel Saleeb & Benjamin Woodgates. This is a programme cram-packed with variation & intrigue, showcasing some of the UK’s most important emerging composers..
Pre-concert talk by Paul Mealor & Phillip Cooke at 6.45pm.
