MASTERWORKS 2020 | SOUND AND FURY

Anna Clyne

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Masterworks takes pupils on a creative journey, offering a fantastic opportunity for upper secondary school music pupils to experience the excitement of a live orchestra up close in concert, and to hone their listening, performing, composing and improvising skills through experiential workshops. The project is designed to open up new sound-worlds to young people, to encourage them to listen to a wider variety of genres, and to equip them with knowledge and musical tools to be more adventurous in their own compositions.

Masterworks 2020 features Anna Clyne’s Sound and Fury and Within Her Arms, conducted by Catherine Larsen-Maguire.
