Young Composers Hub Premiere

As part of our 2019 August festival, Absolute Classics premiered a new commissioned work by one of our local young composers as part of our Young Composers Hub. Over the past year we supported Fraser Clark to work closely with professional musicians in order to compose a new piece to be performed for the first time at this year’s festival.

Through this project, Fraser travelled to meet and work directly with members of the Ferio Quartet so that he could understand how these instruments interplay in a quartet, and then compose and refine a mature, modern composition that was performed to a sell-out audience at the Theatre Royal. Fraser’s piece was extremely well received and audience members commented on how exciting it was to be part of the premiere.
