BCMG performs as part of Wigmore Hall’s ‘Helen Grime Day’. Grime’s Seven Pierrot Miniatures display the composer’s uncanny feeling for instrumental colours and textural contrasts, whilst her Clarinet Concerto is a study in virtuosity that grows more meditative as it unfolds.

Knussen and Carter have been formative influences in Grime’s career. A connection alluded to through her Embrace, Knussen’s delightful Songs without Voices and Carter’s Au Quai, itself written for Knussen’s 50th birthday.
