Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra
Anna Meredith is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music. Her work straddles the worlds of contemporary classical, avant-pop and experimental rock, and is often described as ‘maximalist’ and ‘uncategorisable’.
In 2010, Southbank Centre commissioned Anna and renowned beatboxer Schlomo to write a new piece for beatboxers and orchestra. The concerto that resulted is an acclaimed modern classical work that recognises the human voice box as a musical instrument.
