Halsall’s new solo piano album is entitled Miniaturised Concertos | Maché, and will be released on the Métier label from Divine Art Recordings this May.
Miniaturised Concertos | Maché was largely recorded and produced at Trinity Laban, and involves Trinity Laban staff and alumni. Head of Composition Dominic Murcott contributes a new piece called Time and Place, while alumnus Rachel Ueckermann plays piano on the album.
The album expands the double piano concerto format with a series of experimental miniatures that use a wide variety of forces, such as electronics, chamber ensembles and duos. The project was developed through a series of workshops and performances involving professional musicians and students at various venues and institutions, including the University of York, South West Music School and the Banff Centre in Canada.
Kate Halsall teaches part of the Professional Studies module at Trinity Laban, providing specialist guidance for those who wish to develop successful careers in the music and dance industries.
Miniaturised Concertos | Maché will be released on 13 May.
