RNCM Chamber Orchestra with Henning Kraggerud – Original Voices Festival
Friday 15 March 2024, 8.00pm
RNCM Concert Hall
RNCM Original Voices Festival celebrates new perspectives on music that has filled the concert hall, in some cases, for centuries.
From staging, to presentation, and new arrangements, we’re exploring how to maximise performance in the 21st century as we challenge traditions and spark new experiences.
Part of our Future is Green initiative, this year our festival is specially focussed on thinking how we can re-examine familiar music through the lens of the climate emergency and natural world.
Forget convention – our International Chair in Violin Henning Kraggerud joins our Chamber Orchestra to propel audiences into an exciting concert hall experience.
How can our own modern voices be heard through Mozart? Where is there room for improvisation in Mendelssohn? Why not ask the audience what they want to hear?
Working side-by-side in the lead up to this event, Henning and our students will challenge narratives and performance practice to create something intriguing and extraordinary in this one of a kind performance. Henning will also explore flexible scoring, showcasing the possibilities for live music to be enjoyed in a more environmentally friendly way.
