As part of Beyond the Premiere, we have been working with the City of London Sinfonia and Michael Collins to showcase Gwilym Simcock’s new work for Clarinet and Strings, On a Piece of Tapestry.

The world premiere took place at Wiltshire Music Centre on 4 April 2014 with further performances in Hull on 6 April and Southampton on 15 May as part of a wider City of London Sinfonia tour. Further dates were added for autumn 2014 including Oswestry on 17 October and Hereford on 18 October.
