“The Rest is Noise”, Queen Elizabeth Hall London, 3 February
Folk music was the inspiration behind the work of many composers in the early 20th century. Kathryn and Northern Sinfonia explore this phenomenon worldwide — from the North East’s own W G Whittaker to Brazilian folk-heroine Chiquinha Gonzaga, passing through Spain, Australia, America and Armenia through the music of De Falla, Grainger, Ives, Cassado, Cowell and Komitas. Kathryn has chosen the music for this fascinating concert at Queen Elizabeth Hall, 3 February at 3pm. Tickets are available here.
