LILY IST VON IHREM... ABENTEUER ZURUCKGEKEHRT - WIGMORE HALL
Category: music for voice
Collaborators: Oge Nwosu (Writer)
for soprano, cello, bass clarinet and trombone
Commissioned by Wigmore Hall as part of the Voiceworks
Lily ist von ihrem … Abenteuer zurückgekehrt is the effect of collaboration with writer, Oge Nwosu and emerging musicians: Mimi Doulton (soprano), Akito Goto (cello), Heather Ryall (bass clarinet) and Ian Sankey (trombone). The piece was premiered at the legendary Wigmore Hall in London as a part of a Voiceworks project and has been awarded the Tracy Chadwell Prize for the best project premiered during Voiceworks.
The musical environment was created on the basis of the original text written by Oge Nwosu for Voiceworks and its purpose was to emphasise a spoken word and complement the unspeakable. Importantly, the text takes its form from a collage technique pulling us into the fascinating world of Lily's adventures and the unrelated-related series of events. The project had been developed during a six months period through a series of workshops and meetings lead by Paul Newland and Julian Philips with the support of Wigmore Hall Learning – a major supporter of contemporary chamber music and song, as a commissioner of new works and a champion of living composers.
World Premiere of Lily ist von ihrem … Abenteuer zurückgekehrt took place on 23rd May 2017 at Wigmore Hall in London.
