Psappha - The Last Island
Tim Williams’ final Manchester concert as Psappha’s Artistic Director pays emotional homage to the late Peter Maxwell Davies, the British composer whose music was the group’s original inspiration, and to the wild, untamed land where Max found his lifelong home.
The Last Island paints a haunting picture of Orkney in all its glorious, mysterious isolation. It’s performed tonight alongside four new works inspired by it, written especially for tonight’s concert by four brilliant young composers and accompanied by new films shot by Tim Williams across Orkney in summer 2021.
The concert begins with another world premiere, a new work from British composer Ben Gaunt – and continues with Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s Sola, a mesmerising and atmospheric new concerto-of-sorts for viola and electronics.
