Jason Anderson’s ‘Piano Quintet’, written for the ensemble, grows out of the simple unison melody which opens the piece. Gradually elaborated and given extra layers, it builds slowly and inevitably towards the piano’s thundering bell-like tolls at the end.
Performed at St. Peter’s Church, Notting Hill on 25 May 2012.
Flute: Becky Chalmers
Clarinet: Ben Graves
Violin: Liza Barley
Cello: Abby Hayward
Piano: Jason Anderson
So this is one of the first arrangements we made – a beautiful song by The Cinematic Orchestra called ‘Familiar Ground’, taken here from our gig last month at St. Peter’s Church, Notting Hill as part of the Notting Hill Mayfest 2012.
Thanks for your interest in Sudden Junction – we’re going to be pretty busy filling up this site with details of upcoming gigs, a bunch of clips of pieces and performances, and links to stuff we like. For the moment why not join our Facebook event for our next gig, at Fix Coffee nr Barbican on 9th July?
Hope to see you there!
