Explore the interaction between composer Djuro Zivkovic and his inspiration, JS Bach.
Exciting contemporary music group, The Riot Ensemble, offer an explosive exploration of new music in their festival debut, pairing contemplative music by Serbian-Swedish composer Djuro Zivkovic, including the UK premiere of Night Music, with much-loved works by JS Bach, one of Zivkovic’s main influences. They’re also performing Moon Dance by the Winter Festival’s youngest composer, 10-year-old Marie-Louise Ptohos.
The Ensemble also premiere a new commission by Spanish composer Helga Arias Parra, who entered the Riot Ensemble’s 2015 ‘Call for Scores’, and describes her music as experimentation, risk and control in that exact order.”
