Late Mix: New Music From The North at Sage Gateshead 

Timothy Orpen performs Magnus Lindberg’s virtuosic Clarinet Quintet – a lively and colourful work highly rewarding to both listener and performer and studded with references to a host of composers including Debussy, Gershwin and Resphigi – with members of the Royal Northern Sinfonia on 25th February.

The concert is part of the Royal Northern Sinfonia’s  Musical Journey: Sibelius and the Musical North series, which explores the  quintessentially Scandinavian sound world of Sibelius and shows it to be  alive and well in the music of today. The programme also features Hans Abrahamsen’s Walden, Kaija Saariaho’s  Spins and Spell, Larsson’s String Quartet No.3 and Erkki-Sven Tüür’s Symbiosis.

 Thursday 25th February 2016 at 9 pm. Tickets
