 Update me on new releases by Aquarius


The contemporary music group Aquarius was formed by Nicholas Cleobury in the 1980s and worked for over a decade bringing new music to many in an approachable way in concert, music theatre and opera. Working with their president Michael Tippett and many other leading composers from Lennox Berkeley, Peter Maxwell Davies and Harrison Birtwistle, to George Benjamin, Paul Patterson and Steve Martland, also championing young composers, they appeared frequently on London’s Southbank, at many festivals across the UK, and notably in Aldeburgh, Berlin and Vienna with Birtwistle’s own production of his Punch and Judy and in a touring production of Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale by Timothy West. They broadcast frequently for the BBC and made many recordings including music by Peter Maxwell Davies and of the original versions of Falla’s ballet scores El amor brujo and El sombrero de tres picos. Nicholas Cleobury continued much of their work when he founded the Britten Sinfonia.
