We explore partnerships old and new in Duets in a Frame on Wednesday 1 June, with our 22nd commission from Sir Harrison Birtwistle and very first from Tom Coult.

Our relationship with Francisco Coll also grows stronger, as we perform the UK premiere of his Liquid Symmetries. Francisco has put together a playlist of important works that have influenced him as a composer, reflecting on our theme of past and present:


Tomás Luis de Victoria Officium Defunctorum-Requiem

Vicent Martín y Soler Una Cosa Rara

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi Stabat Mater

Ludwig van Beethoven Große Fuge

Gustav Mahler Symphony 9


Leoš Janáček Jenůfa

Charles Ives Holidays Symphony

Igor Stravinsky Le Sacre du printemps

György Ligeti Le Grand Macabre

Thomas Adès Asyla
