48 hours of contemporary music in the Ukraine

Duo Retorica - outstanding young British violinists Phillipa Mo and Harriet Mackenzie - perform my latest premiere yet in Odessa’s Two Days and Two Nights of New Music Festival. This remarkable Festival presents a programme of new music from 4pm to 4am two days running (18-20 April), leaving audiences exhausted but, hopefully, elated… Retorica go on at 12am on 20 April, performing a colour-themed set of duos written for them by various composers.
