June brings multiple performances of Philip Cashian’s works!
On Thursday 16 June Philip Cashian’s Madrigali will be performed at the Royal Academy of Music, London
Madrigali is a setting of six short poems by Lorca, and it was written earlier this year for Rosie Middleton and Louise McMonagle.
On Wednesday 22 June Harry Rylance premieres The Distance of Night, also at the Royal Academy of Music, London. This concert is in memory of Simon Bainbridge (1952-2021), who was one of the foremost composers of his generation and Head of Composition at the Academy from 1999 to 2007.
The Distance of Night is a slow barcarolle for solo piano, written in memory of Simon Bainbridge. It is a commission to the 200 PIECES project in celebration of the Royal Academy of Music Bicentenary.
On Friday 24 June The Art of Memory will be performed by Anssi Karttunen at Aldeburgh Festival.
The Art of Memory is one of a collection of pieces for solo cello written for Anssi Kartunnen, who gave the premiere last autumn in Helsinki.
Madrigali and The Art of Memory are proudly published by CE, and The Distance of Night will be added to our catalogue once it’s been premiered.
