Sounding Brass

Music for brass including works by Gabrieli, Dowland, Britten, Harvey and Birtwistle.

The site of Prestongrange’s museum has a fascinating industrial history going back to the 16th Century including glass, pottery and brick manufacture as well as mining. The impressive, high-roofed Power House is perfect for this exciting programme of music for brass. The Red Note Ensemble contrast sonorous pieces from the Renaissance with the amazing, spatial effects of contemporary music by composers such as Harvey and Birtwistle. The overwhelming, surround-sound beauty of Jonathan Harvey’s Ricercare played by trumpet virtuoso Mark O’Keeffe makes a fitting climax to a very special event.

“O’Keeffe’s playing was undemonstratively sensational. A stupendous performance” – The Herald
