PBO’s What’s New and H.I.P. with Tarik and Rick
features Music Director Richard Egarr
and Artistic Partner Tarik O’Regan
in conversation with British composer Errollyn Wallen, CBE!
Together they will chat candidly about all kinds of things musically-minded — the connections between counterpoint and funk music, Errollyn’s experience with meeting the Queen, and their mutual fascination with legend Ella Fitzgerald!
Among her many accomplishments, Errollyn founded Ensemble X, whose motto is ‘We don’t break down barriers in music… we don’t see any’ reflecting her genuine, free-spirited approach and eclectic musicianship. She has been commissioned by venerable institutions from the BBC to the Royal Opera House and has performed her songs internationally. Enormously versatile, Errollyn Wallen’s song Daedalus appears alongside songs by Björk, Sting, Elvis Costello and Meredith Monk on the Brodsky Quartet’s CD Moodswings. And in 2007, Errollyn was awarded an MBE for her services to music in the Queen’s birthday honours list in 2007, and a CBE in 2020.
