OPEN CONVERSATIONS WITH PHILIP VENABLES EP2 PT.1

 

https://youtu.be/9JqmmSUcrqY

We’re excited to once again feature Will Davenports Open Conversations. This time he checks in with the incredible Philip Venables. 

 

Philip Venables has been described as a ”composer of ferocious dramatic instincts” and ”an arrestingly original musical personality” by Alex Ross in The New Yorker and as ”one of the finest composers around” by The Guardian. Philip’s output covers opera, music theatre, multimedia concert works, chamber music and song, an eclectic range of styles and influences, and themes such as social politics, violence, gender and storytelling.

 

Alongside their long-term collaborator Ted Huffman, Philip has produced numerous pieces, such as the opera Denis and Katya, 4.48 Psychosis and My Favourite Piece is the Goldberg Variations

 

The self-referential piece which Philip wrote is entitled Venables Plays Bach
