Premiere of new Community work with Ignite: World-Filling Light

24 July 2012
Wigmore Hall
London, England

Concert 1.30pm - 2.30pm

Written for amateur musicians and a professional Sextet IGNITE. World-Filling Light is part of the project "Beautiful Sounds" and was commissioned by the Wigmore Hall Trust. The score created by Param Vir contains much graphic notation, harmonic and rhythmic material and the text of "LIGHT" from Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali (in a new translation by William Radice). These are used as the basis for group improvisation. The six soloists of IGNITE will lead the workshops with various community groups, and are directed by Jackie Walduck.

The work is in 6 movements, which can be arranged in any order. There are further ordering choices within some of the groups and different techniques of collage and improvisation are utilized.

Tickets for this free event are only available from the Wigmore Hall Box Office on + 44 20 7935 2141.
