Christopher Bond Equinox
Judith Weir Airs from Another Planet
Garth Knox Satellites
RCM composer New work (world premiere)

Find your new favourite piece with our Chamber Essentials series, which promotes music by underrepresented composers.

'In space, the seemingly simple idea of standing still becomes a complex notion...', RCM chamber musicians present an evening of otherworldly music inspired by Visiting Professor Garth Knox's Satellites, a piece which demonstrates the virtuosic capabilities of the string quartet.

Christopher Bond’s energetic piece for lower brass, Equinox, depicts the twice-yearly occasion when the earth's axis results in an equal amount of day and night, while Judith Weir’s Airs from Another Planet imagines futuristic space colonisers marooned on a distant planet.
