Presented by the London Sinfonietta.

Sian Edwards conductor

Luke Bedford has fast become one of the most important composers of his generation, in part on the evidence of past work for the London Sinfonietta. This new ensemble composition is a major 25-minute work, which will be performed for a second time after the interval to give the rare instant second chance for an audience to get to know this brand-new composition. The programme also includes an ensemble arrangement of the 2011 double-soloist and string ensemble composition Wonderful Two-Headed Nightingale, and music by Gérard Grisey, whose music holds a fascination for Bedford.

Luke Bedford's new work is commisioned by the London Sinfonietta with the generous support of Michael and Patricia McLaren-Turner.


Luke Bedford : Wonderful No-Headed Nightingale (UK premiere of ensemble version)
