Gordon’s monolithic work Rushes is an hour-long wall of sound made up of pulsating, hypnotic, and slowly shifting patterns, performed by an instrumental ensemble of seven bassoons.
Claire M Singer is a composer, producer and performer whose debut album for organ, cello and electronics was dubbed ‘genuinely magical’ by The Quietus.
Tonight Singer, known for her experimental approach to the organ, performs gleann ciùin with the LCO.
The piece was commissioned and first performed by the orchestra in the 2019 New Music Biennial.
