Get to know our players’ brilliant solo abilities


We are very lucky to have such a talented bunch of people playing in the Collective and we thought it was high time we showed them off. We’ve prepared a selection of established and newly commissioned works as well as our fantastic Call for Score winners.

  • We have a virtuosic percussion piece featuring Dan Nolan with calm string quartet accompaniment by Jasmine Simons.
  • A beautiful solo clarinet commission from Aidan Maier telling the story of a nightingale in the space of a few minutes.
  • Johnny James – Music builds on his piece for piano, lasers and audience at Brighter Sound, putting the laser in the hands of violinist Libby Sherwood.
  • The Animal Puppet Picture Show by James Piper takes a slightly spooky ride with cellist Malcolm Goodare.
  • Dominic Skingle imitates the call of seagulls for Robin Wallington’s dexterous viola piece.
  • The Clockwork Crocodile by James Woodhall – a playful quartet with rhythms that will constantly keeps you on your toes!
