The debut concert of the SOUND UP prime series will see the performance of works that are rarely heard or have never been performed in Russia before: the mesmerizing and monumental opus of John Luther Adams “Become Ocean” that received a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 and a Grammy for the “Best Contemporary Classical Composition” in 2015; Jonny Greenwood’s suite based on the music from There Will Be Blood movie that was nominated for Grammy in 2008 for the “Best Soundtrack”; selected compositions from the Under the Skin movie that were written by Mica Levy who collected a number of awards at the European and American film festivals; and a number of other pieces.
This event is part of the UK – Russia Year of Music 2019, a programme which celebrates the UK and Russia’s rich musical cultures and our profound respect for each other’s musical traditions and achievements. The UK-Russia Year of Music programme is conducted by
the British Embassy in Moscow with the support of the British Council.
