Premiere and Broadcast of Tansy Davies's Grand Mutation

Feb. 01, 2021

Premiere and Broadcast of Tansy Davies's <em>Grand Mutation</em>

Tansy Davies's Grand Mutation, a new work for violin, horn, and piano, is the most recent addition to the composer's chamber ensemble catalogue. Grand Mutation takes its name from the significant astrological event which took place on December 21, 2020: the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Air signs for the first time in 200 years.

As a horn player, Davies is very familiar with the musical embodiment of ‘Air’ and gives the instrument intriguing, elongated gestures which emerge and submerge into the continuous semiquaver murmurs of the violin and piano. The world premiere performance of Grand Mutation was recorded for broadcast on January 28 by Ensemble Court-circuit (Alexandra Griffin-Klein, violin; Antoine Dreyfus, horn; and Jean-Marie Cottet, piano), as part of soundFestival, both of whom commissioned the work with support from the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, Fondation Francis et Mica Salabert, and Diaphonique. Following this, the recording will be broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and Radio France.
