Jonny Greenwood and Anna Meredith to Join 12 Ensemble at London's Barbican

Jun. 01, 2021

Jonny Greenwood and Anna Meredith will join forces with pioneering string group 12 Ensemble for a live and streamed concert in London's Barbican Hall on June 19

The program includes Jonny Greenwood's evocative, Philip Larkin-inspired Water, for chamber orchestra, during which the composer will join the ensemble onstage, playing the tanpura. The eighteen-minute work was originally commissioned and premiered by the Australian Chamber Orchestra in 2014, following the composer's residency with them. It was later released on ABC Classics.

Anna Meredith joins the ensemble to perform the live electronics in her composition, Moon, for amplified chamber orchestra. It was originally commissioned and launched by Sinfonia Viva in 2013 with whom she was Composer-in-Residence. The twenty-minute work comprises five movements each lasting four minutes and each inspired by the phases of the moon. Meredith's sister, Eleanor Meredith, will also be providing live drawing as the piece unfolds in what promises to be an intriguing evening.

The concert is available to watch in person, or online. Click here for details.
