Edwin Roxburgh: Time’s Harvest
Eric Whitacre: Sleep
Nigel Clarke: Symphony No. 1, ‘A Richer Dust” for speaker and wind orchestra (words: Malene Sheppard Skaerved)

This very special concert for Remembrance weekend focuses on Nigel Clarke’s first symphony, ‘A Richer Dust’. It explores what it means to live with violence and extremism, the constant companions of human history. The work intertwines words collated from a wide range of sources by the writer Malene Sheppard Skærved with Clarke’s music, weaving together ideas and images in fragments of text from both historically significant figures and voiceless, ordinary people.
