Wiltshire Music Centre Bradford upon Avon United Kingdom
Birmingham Contemporary Music Group
It is a thrill to welcome the internationally acclaimed BCMG to the Wiltshire Music Centre for the first time, performing here as part of Corsham Festival 2009. One of Europe’s leading ensembles, the passionate commitment and infectious enthusiasm of their performances inspires audiences wherever they go. In this typically wide-ranging, varied and interesting programme, they include Schoenberg’s gorgeously expansive chamber symphony, arrangements by Birtwistle of music from the middle ages and renaissance, plus pieces by Donatoni, Woolrich and Barry—all irresistible masters of humour and fantasy.
