Early on in the first lockdown we decided that we should create #ERSOOnline to keep our community of wonderful musicians playing together in difficult times. We started to think about composers who have not been as well recognised and remembered as they should have been – “forgotten voices”. This led us to two amazing female composers Lili Boulanger and Mel Bonis.

In this short video our conductor Chris explains how we went about creating our first film of Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps:

Find out more about Lili Boulanger and watch our first #ERSOOnline film which we created to illuminate her gorgeous “D’un matin de printemps”
