Butterworth, Clyne, and Elgar

January 16, 2016

Anna Clyne
Dr Les Clyne, who many of us know, can be very proud of his daughter, Anna Clyne, who is becoming a well know composer on the world stage. Currently she lives in the USA, but spent some of her formative years in Abingdon.

This evening there was the UK premier of her Violin Concerto ‘The Seamstress’ at the Barbican in London. It was on Radio 3 in a concert with the BBC Symphony Orchestra containing pieces by Butterworth, Clyne, and Elgar. You can listen again here. The introduction to ‘The Seamstress’ starts at about 14:38 minutes.

    Thanks Alastair for the link.
    I listened to her violin concerto but unfortunately I wasn’t impressed. Give me Sibelius anytime!
