Following our Scenes from a Street and Professor Bad Trip tours in 2022 our talented and accomplished ensemble will be performing a brand new programme to five venues in Wales between February and March.
UPROAR – Wales’ New Music Ensemble returns with its latest project for 17 musicians, championing some of the most exciting voices in Welsh classical music today alongside multi-award-winning international composers. Three new bold pieces of classical music that will take you on a journey, inspired by, and responding to contemporary life in Wales.
UPROAR will also be performing music from well-known international composers, Olga Neuwirth’s dynamic soundtrack complements the playful abstract film of Viking Eggeling in her piece ‘Symphonie Diagonale’. And in ‘Son of Chamber Symphony’ by John Adams, the world’s most popular living composer, the last movement was described in the Los Angeles Times as ‘..one of those Adams bucking-bronco blastoffs, riveting and full of surprises."
