While we weren’t able to undertake our planned tour of Rebecca Saunders’ work this week, our musicians had already put many months of work into preparing the repertoire. Accordion player Ryan Corbett was due to join Hebrides Ensemble for the first time this week for two of Saunders’ pieces, and here he demonstrates some of the extended techniques she uses in her writing.
