Student Performances

Simon Baines conducts the School of Music’s crack contemporary music ensemble performing two world premieres, one by a postgraduate student from the School of Music and a new instalment in Mic Spencer's developing cycle Ungrund (after Böhme). The work sees the return of alumnus student Adam Starkie who will perform with LSTwo in this high-octane piece for clarinet and ensemble.

This concert will also include a performance by Emiliano Gavito (flute) and Adam Starkie (clarinet) of music for flute and clarinet from the second half of the 20th century up until today. Emiliano and Adam have worked together since meeting in Strasbourg whilst studying for postgraduate performance degrees at the Strasbourg Conservatoire; they both share a passion for contemporary music and a special interest in promoting works by young composers.
