Tradition meets innovation as two renowned ensembles team up for a striking new collaboration. Recorder quintet Consortium5 and vocal trio Juice join forces to perform 'A Stratagem for Light' music by Luke Styles, text Jacob Sam-La Rose, newly commissioned with the generous support of the PRS Foundation, RVW Trust and the Britten-Pears Foundation.
‘A Stratagem for Light’, where light and dark meet, where the human voice and the instrumental blend and depart. Fusing the traditions of these two distinct ensembles, the new work will be performed alongside vocal inspired instrumental Renaissance works (Dowland, Byrd, Tye, Victoria) performed by Consortium5 and contemporary vocal works (Robinson, Hellawell, Oates) performed by Juice.
This refreshingly eclectic programme sets out to explore, question and emphasise the concept of the recorder as the closest instrument to the human voice.
Subsequent performances include:
