Since 2005, Sadie Harrison has worked as both a composer and a professional archaeologist, specialising in the prestige Bronze Age pottery of the Carpathian Basin.
This illustrated talk will discuss the ways in which her recent music is informed by both the techniques and aesthetics of archaeological practise. Sadie Harrison’s music has been performed internationally by some of the world’s top musicians with numerous radio and television broadcasts. Several CDs of her music (NMC, METIER, Sargasso, BML, Cadenza, Clarinet Classics) have been released to critical acclaim. Her works are published by the University of York Music Press and Recital Music.
The Fourteenth Terrace, a concerto for clarinet and ensemble, is to be performed at the concert directly following the lecture (7.30 Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall)
