The second in Music in the Round's new Sounds of Now concert series

“…their enterprise and dedication are breathtaking.” The ArtsDesk

Music in the Round's new concert series, Sounds of Now, continues in April when musicians from Psappha perform intoxicating works for eclectic instruments including tuned plant pots and the hypnotic cimbalom, an instrument at the heart of Hungarian folk music.

Since their first performance three decades ago, the musicians of Psappha have become a vital presence in this country’s new music scene. In their Music in the Round debut, these outstanding musicians will also perform Harrison Birtwistle’s The Axe Manual, an extraordinary musical battle that pits the piano against an enormous range of percussion, and a beguiling, ethereal recent work by Joanna Ward for solo cello.

Sounds of Now is a platform for musicians who are creating and exploring some of the most exciting artistic ideas today, nurturing talent, inspiring new thinking and provoking debate. This new live music series from Music in the Round is your invitation to engage and connect with music in new ways.

A bar will be open before the advertised start time, please check back here for further details closer to the event.
