Folkestone New Music: Melinda Maxwell

Folkestone New Music: Melinda Maxwell

Virtuosic oboe pieces by two great Italian composers, Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, plus a rare opportunity to hear two classic electroacoustic works: Jonathan Harvey’s Mortuos Plango - Vivos Voco (where a boy’s voice is set against the great tenor bell of Winchester Cathedral) and Varèse’s Poème électronique, widely acknowledged to be one of the first great creations of electronic tape music.

Melinda Maxwell is one of the leading oboists in the country as well as a composer and improviser. She gave the first performance of Harrison Birtwistle’s Pulse Sampler, written specially for her, and worked closely with Berio. She performs regularly as principal with the London Sinfonietta.
