Beslan by Nick Bicāt (first live performance) Andrew Parrott with Emily Van Evera, Frances M Lynch and Cantata Dramatica Soloists

Beslan was composed by Nick Bicāt in collaboration with his brother Tony, as a response to the tragic events in Beslan, North Ossetia, where 186 children and over 140 adults were massacred by Islamic militants who occupied a school and held over 1,100 people hostage for three days in September 2004.

Tony Bicāt's enigmatic and challenging lyrics have inspired thirty minutes of dramatic and moving music.

A professional recording of Beslan was made with conductor Andrew Parrott in 2007 and is due for release later this year.

The programme will also include related songs and readings exploring the successful collaboration between Nick and Tony Bicāt over many years.
