ELISION in residence at Harvard

HGNM ELISION PosterThis week, ELISION Ensemble will be in res­id­ence at Harvard University, cul­min­ating on Saturday 17 May in a con­cert of new music by graduate com­posers at Harvard that will also in­clude the US première of Richard Barrett’s Lens, for flu­gel­horn and elec­tric lap-steel guitar.

Ensembles that un­der­take their work and per­form with the in­teg­rity and in­tensity of ELISION are rare, so it will be an eye-opening ex­per­i­ence having them here. My short ex­per­i­ment for them is for elec­tric lap-steel guitar and a strange quintet of oboe, bass cla­rinet, con­tra­bass cla­rinet, trumpet and trom­bone. Come along on Saturday to hear more!
