Klara Lewis will headline Kammer Klang's latest show with Christopher Redgate and Phaedra Ensemble performing the work of Leo Chadburn.

tQ favourite Klara Lewis is set to headline the latest edition of Kammer Klang's acclaimed series of live performances on March 7.

The acclaimed artist, whose most recent album Too was number 14 in our top 100 albums list last year, tops a similarly sterling bill that makes up part of Kammer Klang's 'Season Seven'.

Support comes from the classically-trained Christopher Redgate, performing a self-penned piece titled Multiphonia, performed on his own invention, the 'Howarth-Redgate 21st Century Oboe', which offers extended capability for 21st-century music including microtones, multiphonics, extended range and electronics.

Also on the bill are the Phaedra Ensemble, a collective who aim to explore the spaces between classical, experimental, and popular music by reinterpreting the very finest contemporary works.

At Kammer Klang they are to perform The Indistinguishables by acclaimed composer, musician and contributor to this very site, Leo Chadburn. The piece was originally devised by Chadburn for string quartet Quatour Bozzini at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in 2014.

The original piece is a list of 50 names of British moth species, each accompanied by an individual chord or phrase.

Tickets are on sale now, priced between £5 and £7 advance, or £9 on the night.
