Event: 'Dancings of the Air'

9/2/14: Premiere of a new work for concert band
Dancings of the Air, a substantial new two-movement composition for wind orchestra by Jonathan Pitkin, was premiered by the City of London Symphonic Winds under the direction of David Smith at St Silas Church, London N1 on Sunday 9th February. This direct but intricate work sees melodic lines emerging out of rapid successions of single notes, each voiced by different instruments in turn, and held on in the background to create constantly thickening, shifting harmonies.
