New CD - Kate Whitley

Kate Whitley (UK, 1989) is a composer, pianist, and producer. Awards include a 2015 British Composer Award, a 2014 Borletti Buitoni Trust Special Award and the 2013 Sky Academy Futures Fund Bursary for her work in bringing classical music out of the concert hall and into new contexts.
This new release by Kate Whitley in NMC's Debut Discs series comprises a wide-ranging repertoire – from piano miniatures and chamber works to a concerto and the album title track for children’s choir and The Multi-Story Orchestra. With lyrics by poet Sabrina Mahfouz that imagine a world which ‘beats with beauty’ and cautions against human abuse of nature around us, I am I say is performed by soprano Sarah-Jane Lewis, bass Ashley Riches and a choir made up of children from three South London primary schools.
