We are absolutely delighted to share the news of this new commission from The Hepworth Band to Liz Lane.
The Hepworth Band will commission a suite of music from which will explore the wider interests and influences of the work of the celebrated artist and sculptor Dame Barbara Hepworth, to provide a unique and original soundtrack to her most celebrated works.
“Sculpture & Brass” is the centrepiece of the programme and is an exciting, innovative collaboration between The Hepworth Wakefield and the Hepworth Band. This project is being secured by the Arts Council National Lottery Grant, which also includes a series of online performances and concerts by the Hepworth Band. The Hepworth’s gallery spaces and outdoor sculpture garden will provide the setting to experience these live performances.
Liz Lane tells us:
In these difficult times, it feels an absolute privilege to have this to look forward to next year, with a series of performances at the Hepworth Museum in Wakefield and a recording. Very much looking forward to liaising both with the band and the museum over the coming months.Liz Lane
We at Composers Edition look forward to this new work, and publishing the score and parts in due course.
