In an era when minimalism and simplicity seem to be the most popular movements in contemporary music, Harrison Birtwistle continues to follow an uncompromising, modernist path. His music, both instrumental and operatic, is inherently theatrical, sometimes violent, and often lyrical. In recent years his output has been considerable, boosted by a number of international commissions. John Tusa talks to Birtwistle as the composer works on an orchestral piece for the Cleveland Orchestra and an opera for Covent Garden.
By Sean O'Brien. A fast, funny and frightening 21st-century Jacobean revenge tragedy set in the violent, corrupt and sexually driven world of contemporary politics. It's conference time on Tyneside before an autumn election and the Labour government is on the ropes.
Music composed by Keith Morris and performed by Keith Morris. Wendy Brown , Graham Hardy and Dave Borthwick. Director Melanie Harris
