We spoke to Clarinettist/composer Arun Ghosh about the Winter Rasa concert on the 10th of December at Shoreditch Church (7:00pm), part of the Spitalfields Winter Festival, and preceded by a talk at 6.00pm.
Ghosh has written a new piece based on Sonnet II by Shakespeare "When forty winters shall besiege thy brow", for the East End Notes, an all-male choir directed Omar Shahryar which he will perform at the concert.
We also talked about inspirations behind his new album A South Asian Suite, and other examples of the journey through landscapes as a theme in composition (Duke Ellington, Miles Davis).
