Helen Grime Day

Helen Grime Day

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom


BCMG performs as part of Wigmore Hall’s ‘Helen Grime Day’. Grime’s Seven Pierrot Miniatures display the composer’s uncanny feeling for instrumental colours and textural contrasts, whilst her Clarinet Concerto is a study in virtuosity that grows more meditative as it unfolds.

Knussen and Carter have been formative influences in Grime’s career. A connection alluded to through her Embrace, Knussen’s delightful Songs without Voices and Carter’s Au Quai, itself written for Knussen’s 50th birthday.
