Consortium5: Women Make Music
Consortium5 mark the 100th anniversary of the death suffragette Emily Wilding Davison on the site of her memorial service in 1913 with three new commissions by Roxanna Panufnik, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian and Litha and Effy Efthymiou.
Consortium5 formed in 2005 and have since established themselves as one of the foremost recorder consorts of their generation. Alongside early music, working with composers forms a central part of Consortium5′s activity. In 2010 they recorded their debut album on the Nonclassical Label, voted among the top ten best classical albums of the year by Chicago Time Out. A review from influential blog Sequenza21 concludes that the album ‘suggests a new frontier for chamber ensembles’. The ensemble will mark the 100th anniversary of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison with three commissions by Roxanna Panufnik, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian and Litha and Effy Efthymiou.
