Britten Sinfonia Opus2013 Shortlist

Kim is delighted to have been chosen for the Opus2013 Britten Sinfonia workshop in November, for which he is writing a piece for the fantastic chamber group of oboe, harp and string quartet.  Gems in the closely-related field of the oboe quartet include Mozart’s oboe quartet and Britten’s Phantasy Quartet, while Kim was lucky enough to see Holliger play Carter’s in Salzburg this summer. The addition of the harp – at once delicate and brutal (Berio’s Sequenza springs to mind) brings both percussive edge and rich resonance to the group. Kim is very much looking forward to getting started on the piece… when a free moment appears!
