'Upon Weightless Wings'/ RLPO Ensemble 10/10 /Liverpool

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra's new music group, Ensemble 10/10, celebrates their 21st Birthday in this special concert.

As Ensemble 10/10 turns 21, and Estonia celebrates 100 years of independence, this is a portrait of a small nation with a big musical voice. Three pieces by Pärt form the quiet centre of a concert that places the utterly individual sounds of Lepo Sumera and Erkki-Sven Tüür alongside the music of Liverpool composer Stephen Davismoon and a premiere from Grace-Evangeline Mason, our Christopher Brooks Competition Prize Winner, in association with the Rushworth Foundation.
