ELEANOR ALBERGA AND THE MUSIC OF THE JAMAICAN NIGHTS
Eleanor Alberga will join us via videoconference to talk about Home and Belonging in her music, and to allow us to get to know her and her music better, in preparation for the performance of her String Quartet No. 2 at Music Mountain. Questions from the audience are welcome. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Eleanor Alberga is a highly-regarded mainstream British composer with commissions from the BBC Proms and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden. With a substantial output ranging from solo instrumental works to full-scale symphonic works and operas, her music is performed all over the world. Eleanor Alberga’s music is being presented at Music Mountain for the first time.
