Edmund Finnis commissioned by Manchester Collective: New Music Biennial
The UK premiere of a piece for string ensemble, The Centre is Everywhere is a starkly original work, described by Music Director Rakhi Singh as “something beautiful and strange, a music of close whispers and myriad reflections”. The Centre is Everywhere brings together Finnis’ exquisite sonic language with the work of one of Britain’s most exciting young ensembles, Manchester Collective.
Edmund Finnis has composed intimate music for soloists and duets, immersive electronic pieces, music for film, ensemble music and works for large orchestra. His music has been hailed as ‘magical’ (The Times) and ‘iridescent, compelling’ (The Guardian).
Manchester Collective produces innovative and outward-facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain.
