Description

Sounding Space invites you to travel through space and time with music from medieval to modern. Inspired by the planets and visualised by projections, ensemble Sirinu lead a journey through Oxford’s Museum of the History of Science. Mixing Dunstable, Dowland, Handel and Herschel with Scelsi, Finnissy and Ligeti, the performance culminates in the world première of Einsteins Tafel, a new music-theatre commission from Martyn Harry.

Sirinu performs early, world and new music and has commissioned new pieces for early and unusual instruments. It has toured internationally for the British Council and recorded for Chandos and Hyperion. The musicians are all multi-instrumentalists, playing instruments ranging from medieval to modern, folk, and from traditions all around the world. The have recently recorded an album of chamber pieces by Howard Skempton,The Man Hurdy-Gurdy & Me, on the Métier/Divine Arts label, due for release in 2018.

Sirinu are:

Sara Stowe - soprano, harpsichord
Isabelle Carré - flutes
Matthew Spring - lute, theorbo, viol, hurdy-gurdy
Chris Brannick - percussion, harpsichord, guitar
