New commission for Aldeburgh Festival 2023

Nathan’s new String Quartet, a commission from Britten Pears Arts, will be premiered by the Heath Quartet at the Aldeburgh Festival 2023, on Sunday 25th June.

Nathan introduced the work in conversation with Roger Wright, chief executive of Britten Pears Arts, at the launch of the Festival programme in December. He describes the piece as ‘a deeply personal work, juxtaposing consonance and dissonance, darkness and light, tenderness and rage, in a heady cocktail of extremes’.

The work will be heard in between wonderful music by Fanny Mendelssohn and Benjamin Britten. Click here to learn more via the Britten Pears Arts website. Click here to find out more about Nathan’s previous commissions and compositions.
