Performance by Anton Lukoszevieze and in-conversation

6 February 2019

Wednesday 6 February, 7.00pm

Cellist Anton Lukoszevieze gives a short solo performance, which will include Raimondas Rumsas, a work for solo cello by Laurence Crane, composed for Lukoszevieze in 2002. The piece is played with a curved bow, which can sustain all four strings of the instrument simultaneously. Lukoszevieze has been performing Crane's work for over 20 years - often with his own ensemble, Apartment House - and has also worked with Beatrice Gibson, most notably on her film Crippled Symmetry. Following the performance, Gibson and Crane will discuss collaborative processes in Deux Soeurs Qui Ne Sont Pas Soeurs.

Laurence Crane is closely associated with the ensemble Apartment House, who have given over 40 performances of his works.

In the past five years there have been four CDs released of his music; by Apartment House, and by the ensembles Cikada and Asamisimasa, both from Norway, and by the Ives Ensemble, from the Netherlands. His piece Octet, composed for Plus-Minus Ensemble, was shortlisted for the 2009 Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards, in the Chamber-Scale Composition category, and in 2017 he was a recipient of a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award. He is currently a Professor of Composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
