840 PRESENTS: NEW MUSIC FOR STRING QUARTET

LONDON : St James’ Islington SAT 31ST JAN, 2015 Concert begins at 7.30pm

840 is an experimental music concert series based in London, founded in late 2014 by the composers Alex Nikiporenko and Nicholas Peters. Each concert aims to present new music for a different combination of instruments from solo to medium sized chamber ensembles.

840’s debut concert features The Manon Quartet, winners of the 2014 Cavatina Intercollegiate String Quartet Competition, presenting brand new commissions from Louis d’Heudieres, Matthew Lee Knowles, Neil Luck, Alex Nikiporenko, Nicholas Peters and Tristan Rhys Williams. The centrepiece of the concert is provided by the piece Doubles (2012) by John Lely.

The concert is part of St James’ Occasional Concert Series at the St James’ Church, Islington, N1 8PF.
