“Mason burst onto the scene in 2013 with a piece called Convergence, an intensely wrought work for soprano, violin and cello. Now in her early 20s and still at college, Mason has a keen ear for musical texture - from dreamy hazes of electronic sound to sumptuous choral writing.”
— Andrew Dickson, BBC Proms
“Short, but highly charged, pungent harmonies rippling downwards, fierce accents, and the odd detuned chord”
— The Times ★★★★ on 'RIVER'
“River, given its first concert performance at the water-themed dockside Prom in Hull, is a lushly scored work, in which liquid washes of string sound contrast with icy stabs of woodwind and brass.”
— Andrew Dickson, BBC Proms
“Grace-Evangeline Mason, a composer barely out of her teens, who already seemed to me to show a strong theatrical flair in her piece, The Yellow Wallpaper, which made an immediate impact on us all. I was not the only one to find it the most mature and persuasive”
— Brian Dickie, Opera Artistic Consultant, on 'The Yellow Wallpaper'
A new opera by Grace-Evangeline Mason. Created as part of the Formations project by the Helios Collective. Hosted by the English National Opera, and performed and filmed at the Lillian Baylis Studios, West Hampstead - November 25, 2016.
“This wasn’t the first setting I’ve seen of this striking little story, but Grace’s version leapt out of the page with particular vigour; I loved the musically animated wallpaper.”
— Judith Weir on 'The Yellow Wallpaper'
