This was amazing! I hope you were there!!!
And another chance to hear new work Bright Planet, by Whitstable-based composer Helen Caddick. We will keep playing this lovely work until everyone has heard it!
On this occasion CQ are honoured to have been invited to perform Bright Planet at the London gig of Michael Head (described by NME as 'our greatest living songwriter') & The Red Elastic Band.
Commissioned by Alex Caldon in 2015, Bright Planet is scored for Trumpet, doubling on Flugelhorn, Violin and Piano.
Beginning with the Trumpet for the first two movements (Gun reborn & She hid in his skin until the morning came) the Trumpet switches to the Flugelhorn for the final movement Bright Planet, where the heavier, deeper instrument represents the metamorphosis of the guns into their new form.
CQ performers - Alex Caldon (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Alexandra Reid (Violin) and Libby Burgess (Piano).
