This virtual concert is the world premiere of a Piano Concerto, by one of the best-known and most-performed composers of our time, Paul Mealor. Paul was recently made President of JAM, a role that reflects his long-standing collaboration with JAM, having composed several works for the charity and having been a previous Festival Curator of JAM on the Marsh. Paul’s new work comes at the end of this evening’s concert and is preceded by Romney Marsh-based composer Peter Aviss’ The Seafarer; Judith Bingham’s The Hythe – also commissioned by JAM; Bartok’s Romanian Dances and Samuel Barber’s ever-popular Adagio.
This concert has been achieved in partnership with Orchestras Live and is supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund.
