In a concert celebrating female creativity, the seldom-heard music of female English composers Elisabeth Lutyens and Thea Musgrave will be played alongside new commissions for viola and violin duo, by Litha and Effy Efthymiou.

The Zeitgeist Chamber Orchestra and their director Sam Poppleton then come together with Effy Efthymiou to explore the relationship between the dawn of Western Art Music
 and one of the first concerted efforts in Jazz to create contrapuntal concert music – Miles Davis’ album Birth of the Cool.
