May Premieres For Roxanna Panufnik

'Tibetan Winter' and 'The Audience'
Roxanna Panufnik’s Tibetan Winter, will receive its premiere on Friday 1 May at 8.00pm by the Orchestra of the Swan. Tibetan Winter part of a long-term project commissioned by and dedicated to Tasmin Little and Orchestra of the Swan for 'Spring Sounds'. It forms the third movement of a 21st Century ‘Four Seasons’ – each movement taking its influence from a country culturally associated with that season.

Speaking about the new work Roxanna Panufnik says:
“This beautiful Tibetan song has been sung for centuries in many different ways. I first heard a “folk opera” version, sung exquisitely by a popular singer, Namgyal Lhamo, in a softer, more romanticized, rubato (and some would say “westernized”) way. Then I heard a more traditional performance by a Tibetan nomad from the East of the country – complete with frequent glottal stops (translated to the violin into grace notes) and brief bursts of tremelo at the start of longer notes. I have used both versions as each has an individual appeal – and the rawness of the nomad version enhances the trembling chill of a Tibetan Winter.”
