Friday 15 March brings the world premiere of John Palmer’s Anagrams by Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell at the Musica Nova Festival, Reutlingen, part of a European recital tour which takes in Lille, Bordeaux, Desio and Annemasse.
Composed by Palmer in 2018 for Benelli Mosell, the composer says of Anagrams:
Very often the music I write contain codes and cryptic messages that I translate into sounds. The music of Anagrams was inspired by an inscription of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Just like an extended anagram, the resulting musical phrase has been permutated in different manners thus eliciting altered and transcendental meanings.
