On Thursday 12 November, Vic Hoyland’s For Ariel for solo high voice will be premiered by Isabelle Haile in a concert live streamed from the Angela Burgess Recital Hall.
This commission and performance is part of the 200 PIECES PROJECT to celebrate the bicentenary of the Royal Academy of Music.
This performance piece for high solo voice (male or female) can be presented purely as a concert work or as staged – either minimal or presented, and from memory – as a short play lasting some 11 minutes maximum.
As a purely concert work it would have a duration of just under 10 minutes. A simple lighting scheme is suggested; to lead the performance through its varied stages. It is a blank performance space. The work divides into two parts.
