Brian Elias Focus Day Concert – Wigmore Hall

April 24

Saturday 24 April 2021 3:00PM

The second concert in Wigmore Hall’s Brian Elias Focus Day culminates in Geranos. The piece takes its name from the ancient Greek word for ‘crane’ and takes inspiration from dance forms that, according to legend, were devised by Theseus. The concert also features Pythikos Nomos, Elias’s work for saxophone and piano which draws on another ancient Greek musical form, first used to depict the battle between Apollo and the monster on the slopes of Parnassus.
