Forget convention as the RNCM’s International Chair in Violin Henning Kraggerud joins the College’s Chamber Orchestra to propel audiences into a truly innovative concert hall experience, as part of the RNCM’s two-day Original Voices Festival.
Maximising the potential of live performance in the 21st century, the concert will challenge narratives and performances practices to create something extraordinary, asking: How can our own modern voices be heard through Mozart? Where is there room for improvisation in Mendelssohn? Why not ask the audience what they want to hear?
At the same time, Henning will explore flexible scoring, showcasing the possibilities for live music to be enjoyed in a more environmentally-friendly way. This loops in with the RNCM’s The Future is Green initiative, which is all about bringing the natural world and, pressingly, climate change into focus.
