Peel Hall to host trio of free Red Brick Sessions

A further trio of free Red Brick Sessions will be held in Peel Hall, starting this Thursday, 27 October.

The next event in the Red Brick sessions will showcase works by Tansy Davies, alongside a Q&A with the composer. Tansy Davies is one of the freshest and most innovative voices in British composition, and this programme presents five of her works for strings from the last decade; featuring unearthly sounds and dramatic changes of light. Tickets are free for all students here.

Next up on Thursday 10 November is Psappha and Hebrides Ensemble, who will be celebrating 25 years together with a performance that mixes the digital with the orchestral. Tickets are available here.

The final one for this semester comes from Matthew Barley, who will be performing Haydn’s sunny Cello Concerto, alongside three works from the 20th century European avant garde: Hungarian Gy├Ârgy Ligeti’s Ramifications, Italian Salvatore Sciarrrino’s Autorittrato Nella Notte and local lad Sir Harrison Birwistle’s Carmen Arcadiae Mechanicum Perpetuum. Tickets are available here

Red Brick Sessions is a partnership between BBC Philharmonic, Salford City Council, the university and BBC Research and Development 

The Red Brick Sessions plan to offer an innovative programme of music and a powerful way to connect with the pieces, using new technologies and an original format to enhance the audience experience.

Bring your tablet, phone or laptop and interact with the music in a new way – you can even view a live orchestral score.

There will be three more Red Brick Sessions in early 2017!
