Hebrides Ensemble’s Harrison Birtwistle’s Pulse Shadows featuring Claron McFadden

Together with ECAT, Hebrides Ensemble presented a programme of Harrison Birtwistle’s Pulse Shadows and Purcell’s Fantasias, featuring the talented soprano Claron McFadden. Pulse Shadows is regarded as a highly challenging piece for musicians, the soloist and the audiences alike. Will Conway from The Hebrides Ensemble, Peter Nelson from ECAT and Claron McFadden explain why this is such a stunning work to experience.
