Violin Concerto by Deborah Pritchard Inspired by Paintings by Maggi Hambling Featuring Harriet Mackenzie
Kenneth Woods and the English Symphony Orchestra (ESO), who gave the highly acclaimed premiere of British composer Deborah Pritchard’s violin concerto Wall of Water this past October at LSO St. Luke’s, bring the work to the National Gallery in London, where Pritchard’s inspiration – a new series of paintings by the celebrated contemporary artist Maggi Hambling – is on exhibit until mid-February. The performance, on 30 January 2015, will feature violinist Harriet Mackenzie, and will be proceeded by a discussion of the project by Hambling, Pritchard, Mackenzie and Woods, moderated by Colin Wiggins, special projects curator of the National Gallery.
