Psappha - The View South
Antonio Machado’s short, elegant poem Noviembre 1913 captures the essence of the rural Andalusian landscape that this much-loved Spanish writer called home. Composed especially for Psappha by acclaimed composer Simon Holt, The Sower pays homage to the poem, the poet and the land that shaped them both. It’s one of two new Psappha commissions on tonight’s programme (rescheduled from Friday 4 February), the other being a new work composed by Bethan Morgan-Williams in honour of outgoing Artistic Director Tim Williams.
Also this evening, a world premiere from young Scottish composer Rylan Gleave, plus two pieces Psappha has made its own: Aaron Parker’s atmospheric travelogue through the Southern English countryside, and an electrifying tribute to American stride piano pioneer James P Johnson by Psappha’s Patron Mark-Anthony Turnage.
