Tim Lines and Nicolò Foron lead RCM New Perspectives in a programme of contemporary music by Belize-born Errollyn Wallen and Jamaican-born composer Eleanor Alberga.
Two contemporary pieces by renowned female composers performed for an on-demand event, featuring RCM New Perspectives.
RCM New Perspectives, directed by British conductor Timothy Lines and led here by RCM conductor Nicolò Foron, perform a programme of contemporary music by two female composers revered for innovative composition. Belize-born composer and RCM professor Errollyn Wallen’s Horseplay, written in 1998, is a dance piece of four movements, offering jazz tones and striking horn duos. Eleonor Alberga’s On a Bat’s Back I do Fly, a chamber piece written in 2000, takes its title from Shakespeare’s The Tempest and revels in its virtuosity.
Recorded live in the Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall on 15 October at the Royal College of Music in London, this is an on-demand broadcast event.

Support the RCM
The RCM’s autumn season is free to watch online, but the College welcomes gifts of every size to its Scholarships Fund, through which talented young musicians can access world-class education, regardless of their financial means. More than 50% of RCM students currently receive financial support from the College, but with rising tuition fees and costs of living set against a backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, your support is more vital than ever.
