STUART STEVENS (OW 1980) CONCERT

April 5, 2019 7 PM

The work of former student Stuart Stevens (OW 1980) is celebrated in All About and to a Female Artist – a highly engaging music-theatre work that combines the personal stories of a working-class heroine (Shelagh Delaney) with some of the most virtuosic music recently written.

It is Stuart Stevens’s masterpiece and his PhD composition, which he realised a few months before his sudden death in February 2016.

The work was written entirely using 31-tone equal temperament to create new harmony, melody and texture, immersive soundscapes mixed with dramatic speech producing a music-theatre-opera mix.

The work is to be performed at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on Friday 5th April. Many thanks to fellow Old Wulfrunian, Simon George (OW 1980) for passing this information on.
