Apartment House is one of the best and most renowned British contemporary classical music ensembles. For 20 years it monitors all the new that appears on the island’s music scene, becoming the voice of contemporary British composers. Apartment House calls itself a «UK experimental music group», thereby showing the listener its stylistic preferences. In three Russian cities — Moscow, St.Petersburg, and Nizhny Novgorod — the ensemble will perform the music of contemporary British composers, which is rarely performed in our country. With that, it is markedly different from the music of continental Europe, which is well represented on the Russian stage. At these concerts Apartment House will present an eclectic portrait of modern British music. Four premieres will be featured, one of which is Russian: the composition «Stanza» by Arman Guschan was created by request of Platforma project specially for the concert tour.
