This episode of RMC Podcast is the full live recording of the premiere concert performance of Barry Guy’s work ‘Hotshop’, commissioned by RMC and written for an ensemble of students from both RMC and The Royal Danish Academy of Music (DKDM).
The piece was performed by the students in Brorsons Church in Copenhagen on Friday 4 October 2019, conducted by Barry Guy and co-presented in collaboration between RMC, DKDM, ALICE, Snyk and Brorsons Church.
‘Hotshop’ is inspired by American glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. Guy has drawn on inspiration both from Chihuly’s work, and also from visiting his studio and seeing the amount of energy and concentration that goes into sculpting with glass. The graphic score behind the piece is divided into 12 parts, each representing a part of Chihuly’s work series with cylinders, baskets and vases.
