Notes and Editorial Reviews

Permutations is a new work by Freya Waley-Cohen, commissioned as part of a Aldeburgh Festival’s 2017 season and exploring the relationship between architecture and music. The music for six recorded violins, performed by Tamsin Waley-Cohen (Freya’s sister), has been composed in parallel with the design of six chambers, each housing one violin part. The chambers are adaptable, so that each audience member creates their own piece by the path they take through the space and the way they interact with the chambers. It is as if the structure was itself an instrument and the listener, their own performer. Born in London in 1986, Tamsin Waley-Cohen enjoys an adventurous and varied career. In addition to concerts with the Royal Philharmonic, London Read more Philharmonic and BBC orchestras, amongst others, she has been associate artist with the Orchestra of the Swan and works with conductors including Andrew Litton and Tamás Vásáry. She enjoys a duo partnership with Huw Watkins, whose Concertino she premiered, and together they have recorded for Champs Hill and Signum Records, for whom she is a Signum Classics Artist. In 2016-2017 she will be a recipient of the ECHO Rising Stars Awards. She studied at the Royal College of Music and her teachers included Itzhak Rashkovsky, Ruggiero Ricci, and András Keller. Freya Waley-Cohen’s music has been performed by the Manson Ensemble at the Royal Academy of Music, conducted by Oliver Knussen, the Orchestra of the Swan, conducted by David Curtis, CHROMA ensemble, The Hermes Experiment, Reverie Choir, Richard Watkins, Huw Watkins and others, at venues including the Sage Gateshead, Spitalfields Festival, The Ryedale Festival, The British Film Institute, Snape Maltings Aldeburgh, Dartington, The National Portrait Gallery, and Kew Gardens.
