Festival Feature: Composer Howard Skempton
The King's Lynn Festival has a long tradition of presenting contemporary classical music in an intimate setting on the first Monday of the 2-week Festival.
This year we are delighted to welcome eminent composer Howard Skempton, in conversation with the Festival's Artistic Director Ambrose Miller. Join them for a glass of wine on July 13 and enjoy a varied programme of music for clarinet, cello and piano.
This is a reasonably short concert offering an excellent introduction to new classical music. With Skempton's work described by The Guardian newspaper as "Compositions that cloak their complex beauty under a veneer of simplicity" and Sarah Thurlow's clarinet mastery, this is set to be a truly special evening.
The concert will also include a new work by young composer Alex Woolf, the BBC's Young Composer of the Year in 2012.
