RSNO Alchemy works towards 20 January Concert
Royal Scottish Nation Orchestra’s Alchemy Ensemble created and directed by Peter Wiegold do some development sessions ready for the next concert on 20th January 2015. The photo shows a very simple framing rhythm to focus the improvisation – 2 bars on a given rhythm followed by 2 bars free – the ‘lock-down’ often releases flowing playing on the free bars. More about this in his chapter in his forthcoming book! ‘Beyond Britten – the composer and the community‘. (Boydell and Brewer).
