Death & The Maiden
Not yet reviewed.
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 unconducted 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.
12 Ensemble recently joined Elena Tonra (vocalist/guitarist of Daughter) for a unique, reimagined performance of her solo record as Ex:Re at Kings Place in London and in March 2020 12 Ensemble return to Kings Place for Four Seasons Recomposed, which is part of a specially curated programme of works by Max Richter.
