Richard Barnard is working on a new commission for the Alvor Ensemble. The group have commissioned a second work for flute, harp and viola to be premiered in 2021. This follows the success of their previous commission, Our Great Grief and Joy, proudly published on Composers Edition.
The group’s flautist Sarah Newbold (member of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields) said:
We really love the sound world created by Richard Barnard in Our Great Grief and Joy. It is original, descriptive and magical, and we are very much looking forward to discovering this new commission.
This new commission is supported by the Tanza Trust.
We are looking forward to listening to this new work by Richard Barnard, and presenting the music score in due course.
