Premieres from Viva musicians
Sinfonia Viva has joined forces with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Australia, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust (BBT) and the Fidelio Trust to co-commission an exciting new work which will have its world premiere at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on March 19.
Breaking Silence, composed by Fraser Trainer, is a new concerto for orchestra and O Duo percussionists Oliver Cox and Owen Gunnell, and is O Duo’s second major work created with funds from a BBT Special Commissioning Award.
The world premiere will be conducted by Gergely Madaras at the Assembly Rooms from 7.30pm with a chance to hear from the conductor and O Duo in a special Talking Music audience session at 6.30pm.
Sinfonia Viva chief executive Peter Helps said: “We were delighted to been involved in co-commissioning this exciting work by Fraser Trainer and to work again with O Duo, who are certainly making their mark both home and abroad.
“We are particularly excited that the world premiere of Breaking Silence will be in Derby and that this will be the second world premiere for us in two days, with a new work commissioned by Anna Meredith being performed at the Assembly Rooms on March 21.
“The orchestra has a long standing commitment to commissioning new work.”
“These occasions will be made even more special by having the composers join us in Derby. And the international collaboration with colleagues in Australia as well as the opportunity for the audience to meet O Duo beforehand for to learn more about this piece will make the premiere of Breaking Silence an evening to remember for us all.”
