New Blood: 130701

Thu 11 Feb 2016

Dmitry Evgrafov
Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch

At the leading edge of modern classical music is the pioneering label 130701, an imprint of Brighton-based FatCat Records. Its impressive roster includes Max Richter, Hauschka, Dustin O'Halloran, and double Oscar nominee Jóhann Jóhannsson.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary in a specially curated event for Brighton Festival, 130701 presents three of its latest signings: prodigious Moscow based pianist Dmitry Evgrafov, whose adventurous music blends intimate piano with lush string arrangements and rich electronics; pianist-composer Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, whose elegant, instinctual scores have led to commissions from HBO and the BBC; and Resina, the alias of Polish cellist Karolina Rec, whose improvisational use of the cello alongside tape delay, reverb plate and live looping is bold, dynamic and precise.

Just as when FatCat premiered an unknown Animal Collective at Brighton Festival 2003, what you’ll hear is sure to be the start of something special.
