NEW MUSIC BIENNIAL: BEATBOXER
CLORE BALLROOM, SOUTHBANK CENTRE 

Anna Meredith Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra 

Gerry Cornelius conductor

Is the human voice the most incredible instrument of all? Anna Meredith and Shlomo’s hybrid concerto, bringing together six beatboxers and orchestra, sheds any preconceptions of both genres to create a blueprint for a future style of music. Premiered in 2010, a brand new notation for beatboxing was invented that enabled an arsenal of intricate sounds and rhythms to weave within those of the orchestra.

As part of PRS for Music’s New Music Biennial, celebrating works written in the last 15 years, orchestra and beatboxers first meet in Hull, UK City of Culture 2017, before returning to Southbank Centre for a further performance, to be broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
