Hannah Lash’s Fault Lines Premieres at the Presteigne Festival

Jul. 15, 2019

Hannah Lash’s <em>Fault Lines</em> Premieres at the Presteigne Festival

Hannah Lash is Composer-in-Residence at the 2019 Presteigne Festival in the UK which will see the premiere of Fault Lines, a new work for flute and string orchestra, performed on August 27, featuring flutist Katherine Bryan and the Presteigne Festival Orchestra, led by George Vass. Hannah Lash notes:

Fault-Lines is a piece that explores a one-movement concerto form. I'm interested in the idea that the form of a concerto can be driven by the dramatic unfolding of the relationship between the soloist and the ensemble. But also sometimes the lines can become blurred between these two distinct roles, which they do in my piece. And yet it is hard to deny their essentially contrasted relationship: the fault-lines of perception are not undeniable.”

In addition to the world premiere of Fault Lines, pianist Tom Poster will give the UK premiere of Give Me Your Songs on August 23 at St. Andrew's Church. On August 25, Lash’s Folksongs, Three Shades Without Angles, and Stalk will receive their UK premieres during a portrait concert at St. Michael’s Church, and the Presteigne Festival Orchestra, led by George Vass, will give the UK premiere of Chaccones on August 25 at St. Andrew’s Church. On August 26, Hannah Lash's C, and Adjoining receive their UK premieres at St. Andrew's Church, and the same day, Lash will join fellow Composer-in-Residence, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, for a conversation with Louisa Hungate.
