“spine-tingling beauty and conviction”

Platinum Consort will be performing at St Giles Cripplegate, in the heart of the City of London, on Friday 16th November, in a programme featuring three world premieres – two works by Platinum’s composer-in-residence, Richard Bates, and one by David Ianni. Following on from their stunning concert at King’s Place (which I had the great pleasure of reviewing), this promises to be a fabulous evening of choral music, in a beautiful setting. For a taster, Platinum Consort have released a short film:

To coincide with this concert, I will be publishing my Meet the Artist interview with David Ianni, composer of ‘Consecration Prayer’, together with a guest post by Scott on the excitement and challenges of working on new commissions.

My review of Platinum Consort’s concert at King’s Place

“Pristine tonal balance and pure tuning…intimate music-making…sensitively sung…vigorously projected”  
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, 2012

A chance to hear Platinum Concert in a promotional film for their debut CD ‘In the Dark (Resonus Classics). Platinum Consort was founded in 2005 by Claire Jaggers and Scott Inglis-Kidger, a recent Meet the Artist interviewee. Their debut recording (on the Resonus Classics label), which juxtaposes early and modern choral music, is available now, and has already received high praise in the music press.

Platinum Consort will be performing at King’s Place on Saturday 1st September. Further information on their website:
