Event Details

St Andrews New Music Ensemble gives the first performance of Emily Doolittle’s Conversation, a setting for soprano and ensemble of a poem of the same name by Eleonore Schönmaier. The piece explores the contours, textures and melodies that arise when grey seals howl when they are hauled out on the land. Completing the programme is a rare performance of Peter Maxwell Davies’ The Birds which sets the poetry of Kenneth Steven and John Barbour. Featuring Catherine Hooper (soprano) and Judy Brown (mezzo soprano) and conducted by Bede Williams and Michael Downes.

Emily Doolittle’s Conversation was researched with funding from the Culture and Animals Foundation and commissioned by Bede Williams with funds from the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Admission: £3, FREE to Music Centre members
