I’ve just had a flyer through for the London Sinfonietta’s New Music Show 3 which is taking place in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and other spaces around the South Bank Centre on 2 December. I’m looking forward to hearing the second performance of my piece Trends in personal relationships which I’m revising a little after the premiere from the London Sinfonietta Academy earlier this year.
I really like the programming for this concert which includes music by composers I already know and admire and music I’ve been meaning to get acquainted with for ages. There’s also a sequence of intimate solo performances in privileged backstage spaces; I know what a couple of these are going to be and I they should be special. Then Serafina Steer and Olly Coates rounding things off with a late night Purcell Room set which is going to include Yawl Ketch Schooner Brig a gorgeous piece by Charlie Usher which I really think deserves a London outing.
Hopefully I’ll see you there.
