Past the Stars is a collection of pieces that encompasses everything contemporary music should be: expressive, unexpected, and thought provoking.
From Birtwistle’s powerful play on rhythm within Cantus Iambeus, through Param Vir’s poetic Wheeling Past the Stars, and to the dramatic storytelling piece Hayagriva, each composition takes you on a new emotive journey.
Past the Stars is inspired by language and spirituality and elevated by the skill and passion of BCMG’s 15-piece ensemble.
This thought-provoking evening of contemporary music will also feature performances by musicians from BCMG’s NEXT programme. These early-career musicians have been coached by BCMG players in some of the most inspiring and challenging works written in the last 70 years. Past the Stars will be their first public performance of 2021.
