We are delighted to commission a new work from Maya Verlaak, curator of the Post Paradise concert series in Birmingham, which has exploded onto the scene in recent years with fascinating programmes of new sounds and voices.
To end the 2018 series, a performance of Canadian composer Martin Arnold’s reinvention of the string quartet, Contact; Vault. With its long, delirious melody and quiet intensity, this singular work will play us out as the sun sets on this summer’s selection of music we’d like to hear.
