Angela Elizabeth Slater Britten Pears Arts Residency & Ensemble 360 Première

Angela Elizabeth Slater has been in a Composer Residency at Home Reach near the Red House, Suffolk supported by Britten Pears Arts. There, Angela completed the second movement of her accordion concerto Arbor and begun work on a piece for US flautist Sophia Tagart titled As if in memory. This new flute piece ties together the memory of the bird songs we heard more clearly during the initial lockdowns during the pandemic.

Through this piece I create a aural space of UK birdsong meeting US birdsong – something that would not exist in the real world, a tapestry of the sounds we could hear whilst not being able to share the world though our human interactions.

Coming up this month is the world premiere of Angela’s work The Light Blinds by the Ensemble 360 on Saturday 21 May at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. This piece is a RPS commission for Music in Round with Ensemble 360 for clarinet quintet. Angela tells us that this is ‘a turbulent work seeking out drama in both the extremes of darkness and light’.
