ELMG gave the premiere of Frida by Paul Edlin on 3rd July.
We're delighted to announce that the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust has chosen to support our next performance, on 24th November at Queen Mary University of London
I have known Matt Hardy since we worked together on a couple of projects as students at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. When earlier this year his newly-founded ensemble East London Music Group performed its debut concert in the Octagon, Queen Mary, University of London, I was coincidentally living just down the road in Bethnal Green, and very much enjoyed their compelling performance on Stravinsky’s The Soldiers Tale. I was delighted, therefore, when Matt approached me earlier this year to commission me to write a companion piece for William Walton’s Façade, to be premiered at Queen Mary on 24th November.
