Programme Note

Joey Roukens - New work (world première)

Co-commissioned by Britten Sinfonia with support from donors to the Musically Gifted campaign, and by Wigmore Hall with the support of André Hoffmann, president of the Fondation Hoffmann, a Swiss grant-making foundation

Joey Roukens has emerged as one of finest young composers on the Dutch music scene. His works are examples of different genres of music coexisting in a natural way whether it be new or old styles, high culture or popular culture, western or non-western music.

In this hour-long concert we hear a new work from Roukens co-commissioned by Britten Sinfonia and Wigmore Hall alongside music by Lou Harrison and Shostakovich.
