Also this evening :
Benedict Mason, who turns 60, is a musical polyglot and a chameleonic composer drawn to enigmas and puzzles. Mason's music, which was admired by no one less than György Ligeti, is always exciting, thought-provoking and colourful. It sprawls across musical history and juxtaposes different styles in a highly individual and whimsical way. Self-Realistic Songs and Virelais is an enchanting journey through a musical looking-glass world, while the ensemble work ! is a fascinating musical exploration of click languages.
