LOCKDOWN PREMIERES CONTINUE FOR SADIE HARRISON

We are delighted that Sadie has continued to receive premieres during lockdown with new works written for the pianist Rolf Hind and members of the Kreutzer String Quartet - Peter Sheppard Skaerved, Mihailo Trandilovski and Clifton Harrison. 

Rolf Hind premiered the miniature ‘Barkarolle’ on 15 May 2020 as part of his ongoing series of online performances of new works composed in lockdown:

The Kreutzers have now premiered 3 movements from Sadie’s new series ’The River Dreams of Winter’ for string quartet written during lockdown. The piece is based on artwork by Peter Sheppard Skaerved. The spectacular online performances have been ‘compiled’ by Peter from recordings made individually by himself, Mihailo and Clifton. The movements completed so far include a solo violin piece Slackwater-Midnight-Mist presented by Peter in his online series Opening the Composer’s Workshop:

We are extremely grateful that these fabulous musicians are continuing to support Sadie through this period of such uncertainty and hoping that the new works will be heard live before too long.
