This month on M Magazine, we’re celebrating the long-awaited return of the BBC Proms to the Royal Albert Hall.
On Thursday 19 August, award-winning experimental composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki will join Sofi Jeannin and the BBC Singers for a choral playlist colliding the Renaissance with the present day. Works by Hildegard of Bingen, Byrd and Josquin will be woven into a continuous musical sequence with pieces by Stravinsky, Feshareki, Nico Muhly and Roderick Williams.
Over the last decade, previously PRS Foundation-funded Feshareki has been a pioneer at the cutting edge of both contemporary classical and electronic music scenes. In 2017, she was honoured with a British Composer Award for Innovation, adding to accolades including the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Award, the Elgar Memorial Prize and the London Music Masters Award.
Ahead of her Proms performance, we asked Shiva to make us a playlist. Tune in.
