Devonshire Quarter, Saturday 28 August, 7pm

 

This summer the Devonshire Quarter will proudly host a unique event, Music for Rooftops (28 August), which is sure to be a magical moment. As dusk falls at the end of a long late summer Saturday the air will be filled with never-before heard melodies from Eastbourne based composer Clive Whitburn and performed by internationally acclaimed Onyx Brass.

 

This will be a world premiere of a specially written piece of music to be performed outdoors, audiences can enjoy an extraordinary piece of music written for extraordinary times.

 

Now in its 29th anniversary year, Onyx Brass continues to be the leading light in establishing the brass quintet as a medium for serious chamber music, presenting it in the entertaining and articulate style that has become the group’s trademark.

 

BBC Music Magazine described the group as “Easily the classiest brass ensemble in Britain” and Gramophone hailed “Some of the most thrilling chamber brass-playing of its kind”. Onyx are regularly featured on BBC Radio 3 and has commissioned and performed the world premières of well over 100 new works, with this piece sure to be a highlight.

 

Acclaimed and internationally performed composer Clive Whitburn has worked on this concept and is excited to be presenting it to his hometown in this unique, never before attempted experience. The piece is site specific, with the brass quintet performing high above the audience with additional trumpets on roof of the Welcome Building and Congress Theatre. The sound will ricochet and swirl majestically above the audience.

 

The performance will also feature a live large screen projection by Artist Cliff Crawford who is currently working on a visual interpretation of Clive Whitburn’s music in his Virtual Reality crafting studio.

 

This musical event will challenge, excite, inspire and enthral. An expression of hope, Music for Rooftops offers a unique opportunity after such a turbulent period. This promises to be a major musical moment and the advice is simply, be there!

"Haunting and Moving" - David Dimbleby

"We feel new life, new comprehension, an enhanced sense of being...

 

"The lament is slower... it shows the vastness of the cold, empty, lifeless universe against the smallness and vulnerability of human life...

 

"The last movement isloud, racucus, bold and brash. It's full of life...the excited jangling reminding you that you are alive. This is music which makes you happy"
