Kosmos concerto written by Errollyn Wallen a critical success.

The esteemed composer Errollyn Wallen’s ‘Kosmos Triple Concerto’, written for Harriet’s group Kosmos has been a success with both audiences and critics alike at the premiere at the Gala Concert of the Jersey Liberation Festival (Jersey Chamber Orchestra, Eammon Dougan conducting) and the UK premiere at the headlining concert of the Chichester Festival in Chichester Cathedral (Worthing Symphony Orchestra, John Gibbons conducting). Eminent critic Michael White writes in Classical Music Magazine: “unlike any other Triple concerto you might know, this one featured Kosmos, the dynamic trio whose combination of violin, viola and accordion is an invitation to exotic sound-worlds outside the parameters of Western Classicism. Wallen’s piece strayed into Venezuelan dances, Orthodox liturgical chants and other source material that made it a celebration of diversity – entirely appropriate to something that was premiered on the day of Prince Harry’s wedding to Megan Markle, and almost equally joyous.”
