Event Details


St Andrews New Music Week

Students from the University of St Andrews are joined by specialist musicians from across Scotland to perform a new commission by Glasgow-based composer John De Simone. With its rhythmic inventiveness, pungent harmony and melodic beauty, Simone’s music has an immediacy and complexity which sets it apart from so much other contemporary composition. Simone’s new piece for the St Andrews New Music Ensemble entitled Poetics, is an exploration of a post-Stravinskian musical language, and will be performed alongside Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks.

Admission: £3, FREE (Music Centre members)
