Dark Inventions

Folk songs and brand new British music weave together in Dark Inventions’ 2014 Firewheel Tour.

Joined by singer, composer and songwriter Stef Conner, the group performs old songs interwoven with music by emerging composers of the contemporary British scene.

Central to the tour is Firewheel, a brand new work from leading British composer Philip Cashian.

Dark Inventions is a young chamber ensemble that seeks to highlight the links between traditionally disparate music. Established by composers Christopher Leedham and Martin Scheuregger, the group focuses on combining music of different periods, curating projects that aim to entertain and inspire audiences whilst introducing some hidden gems from past and present repertoire.

Firewheel was commissioned with financial assistance from Britten-Pears Foundation. Dark Inventions’ Firewheel Tour is presented in partnership with Sound and Music.
