ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY
LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE
The 12 ENSEMBLE return with their second album Death and the Maiden - a powerful and personal journey through an evolving musical landscape that highlights the unique voice and vision of London’s pioneering un-conducted string orchestra.
With their own arrangement of Schubert’s iconic string quartet at its heart, the record features a brand new commission from newly-appointed ROH Composer in Residence Oliver Leith, alongside a poignant work by Tavener and a tribute to the ensemble’s time in Iceland with a heart-felt arrangement of a song by Sigur Rós.
At this event the ensemble will perform a selection of works off the album alongside music by Caroline Shaw and Ludwig Van Beethoven. The album will be available to buy pre-release.
