The Nash Ensemble’s annual new music showcase is both a final instalment of its American Series – with John Adams’s seminal Shaker Loops and three characteristic pieces by the late, great Elliott Carter – and an eightieth birthday tribute to Sir Harrison Birtwistle, complete with a performance of his entrancing recent work for voices evoking the mysterious world of moths.

John Adams : Shaker Loops for string septet
Elliott Carter : Mosaic for flute, oboe, clarinet, harp, string trio and double bass
Harrison Birtwistle : The Moth Requiem for 12 female singers, three harps and alto flute
