Sospiri perform two concerts to highlight the work of the celebrated contemporary composer, Gabriel Jackson, whose music has been performed and recorded around the world to great critical acclaim. Alongside some of Jackson’s finest choral pieces, Sospiri will be performing music by composers who have most influenced him, including pieces by John Browne, Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Michael Tippett and Igor Stravinsky. There will also be the première of a new piece specially written for the occasion by Sospiri founder, John Duggan.
