Sounds Modern invites you to experience a musical counterpart to the paintings of Lucian Freud. As Freud was reinventing the tradition of portraiture, a generation of English composers was reinventing their relationship with a musical tradition. At the heart of this movement was the ensemble, The Fires of London, formed by Peter Maxwell Davies and an eclectic group of composers and performers. Their concerts delivered an entirely new musical experience.
