Regular Britten Sinfonia collaborator, Nico Muhly is re-orchestrating his acclaimed song cycle, The Last Letter. Originally scored for piano and voice this new arrangement for chamber orchestra forms part of a compelling programme of music and words commemorating the end of World War One. From as little as £10 you can help support the creation and performances of the new piece and get your name in the score.
US-born Nico Muhly has been causing significant ripples in contemporary music circles with a variety of projects. Nico has collaborated closely with artists as diverse as Antony (from Antony and the Johnsons) and Philip Glass. His previous works for Britten Sinfonia include Impossible Things for tenor Mark Padmore, violinist Pekka Kuusisto, and string orchestra; and Sentences, a work for counter-tenor Iestyn Davies and orchestra inspired by the life of Alan Turing.
