In Person Tickets: FREE Please book in advance

Leeds Lieder featured composer Deborah Pritchard joins us to discuss her commissioned cycle The World, and to allow us an insight into her compositional process. Pritchard experiences synaesthesia, specifically perceiving sound as colour, light and darkness. In her own words; ‘Ever since I was a small child, I’ve been aware that some harmonies seemed warm whilst others appeared cold. The relationship between colours and intervals seemed so natural to me that I didn’t question it… When I engage with colour, light and darkness in my work, I become aware of a broader emotional content and hope to illuminate some kind of beauty to the listener.’

Join us to learn more about Deborah’s music, her visualisations and music maps before Ruby Hughes and Joseph Middleton give the world première of this major new song cycle.
