Rambert's Music Director announces Quinta as our new Music Fellow
Quinta will already be known to some Rambert followers, as she worked with Philip Selway and Adem to co-write and perform the music for last year’s Rambert Event. She is a multi-instrumentalist and brings a wide range of experience that is slightly different from what we are used to. I really look forward to working with her, and seeing how she develops as an artist, and seeing how the company’s dancers and musicians respond to her imaginative interventions.
There were 80 applicants for the fellowship this year. As ever, it was difficult to shortlist only eight candidates for interview. All eight were very impressive in different ways, and I hope to keep in touch with all of them in some way. The panel comprised Deborah Galloway, Mark Baldwin’s assistant on Inala; Stephen Johns, Artistic Director of the RCM; Judith Weir, Master of the Queen’s Music; and me. We were unanimous in our choice.
Past music fellows are enjoying ever more successful careers: Gavin Higgins has just had Dark Arteries recorded by Tredegar Town Band, and Rambert continues to tour the ballet; Mark Bowden recently had his large choral-orchestral work A Violence of Gifts premiered by the BBC; Cheryl Frances-Hoad has just had great reviews for her Proms debut; and Kate Whitley continues to attract praise in the UK and oversees for her work with Multi-Story.
Rambert Orchestra and I are completing a disc of Cheryl’s music in September, and this recording for Champs Hill will add to the recent Rambert Orchestra recordings of Gavin Higgins’ What Wild Ecstasy, Tobias Picker’s Awakenings and Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Crying Out Loud. Both Kate and Cheryl are in discussion with us about new Rambert works in the pipe-line.
