New London Chamber Ensemble are to play Jonathan Cooper’s The Funambulist's Daring Feats

Music at Leasowes Bank Festival host the New London Chamber Ensemble with members of the Dante Quartet 
Saturday 30th July 2011 - 8.00pm

Renowned for its innovative programming and attention to musical detail, New London Chamber Ensemble is one of the UK’s leading wind ensembles. Its programmes range from works that form the core of the chamber music repertoire to newly commissioned contemporary pieces. This concert celebrates the music of Martin Butler and the group joins with members of the Dante Quartet to give the second performance of his ‘Rondes d’automne’ which the ensemble will be premiering at the Cheltenham International Music Festival earlier in July, juxtaposed with Spohr’s ‘Nonet in F major Op 31’. Martin was commissioned by Music at Leasowes Bank in 1991 to compose ‘Down Hollow Winds’ and tonight it will have its 20th anniversary performance. With music by Jonathan Cooper and Poulenc this concert is destined to be a fitting finale to the 2011 Festival.

Tickets: £12.00 (adult) £9.00 (under 18) - You can find details on booking tickets here.

Music at Leasowes Bank is one of England’s remotest music festivals. About ten miles to the south of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, between the dramatic rocky outcrops of the Stiperstones and the Long Mynd is Leasowes Bank Farm where, each summer, concerts covering a diverse range of music are held in a converted barn.
