Late-night concert: Rhona McKail & Yshani Perinpanayagam

28 October 2011, 9:00pm - 10:00pm

The last of our late-night concerts is also the last of our concerts featuring the work of exceptional young composer Charlotte Bray, this year's Composer in Residence. Tonight we hear Midnight Closes, a work that has already brought her much kudos, with good cause. Other modern and contemporary composers feature too, including works by the fascinating Lord Berners, performed by two exceptional young artists.
