WORLD PREMIERE Doctor Who composer Murray Gold – when my brother fell
into the river…
David Bedford – Twelve Hours of Sunset
Robert Fripp arr. A. Keeling – Soundscapes
Crouch End Festival Chorus
London Orchestra da Camera
David Temple – conductor
Three inspiring contemporary pieces showcase the talents of Crouch End Festival Chorus at the launch of its 30th anniversary celebrations.
Murray Gold’s piece when my brother fell into the river… is a passionate ode to life, motorbikes, Walt Whitman and India; a dramatic tribute to his brother Jolyon who lost his life in the River Narmada.
David Bedford’s dream-like Twelve Hours of Sunset (the words taken from a song by Roy Harper) depicts the flight from London to Los Angeles, during which the setting sun appears suspended throughout the journey. And King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp uses the technique of looping to create his ethereal Soundscapes, arranged for orchestra and choir by Andrew Keeling.
