Debut Sounds concert review
Friday 12th June 2015

‘Full of crazy rhythms, shakes and shimmies redolent of 1920s’ jazz updated by Mark-Anthony Turnage, a selection of vaudeville characters for the ears, before becoming ghostly, a reminiscence of the night before…’
Sinful Sinfonies, along with new works by Sergio Cote, Paulina Zalubska, and Peter Longworth, was premiered on 10th June by members of the LPO and the Foyle Future Firsts. Read the review from Classical Source here
