NCEM Young Composer Award 2021, in partnership with the National Centre for Early Music and BBC Radio 3.


Award Day at the National Centre for Early Music in York,  when the shortlisted compositions will be presented by Palisander in a day-long workshop led by composer Christopher Fox. That evening, Palisander will perform each of the pieces in the presence of a panel of judges, after which two winners will be announced, one for each of the two age categories

Partenope - Händel-Festspiele  
May 2021 (online)

An arrangement of this Handel opera for 4 recorders; unique to Palisander’s style: a balance of historically informed performance reflecting Handel’s original intent, with extended techniques employed for theatrical purpose, to assist with the overall storytelling. Our intent would be to bring a 21st century baroque twist to Handel’s story within the music.
