Luke Bedford: Renewal for ensemble

Luke Bedford is fast becoming the brightest composing talent of his generation, and the London Sinfonietta performs the world premiere of his first extended work for ensemble.

After an interview with Luke himself the work will be performed for a second time, giving a rare insight into British music at its most cutting-edge. The programme includes other works by Bedford, and the music of Gérard Grisey which has inspired him.

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