Elision Ensemble at the 2011 City of London Festival

Hear and Now goes "Down Under" with a concert from this year's Antipodean-themed City of London Festival featuring the Australian-based Elision Ensemble. Their programme, recorded last month, includes works by some of Australia's leading composers.
There's also the second of two reports from Australian broadcaster Julian Day on cutting-edge Australian composers and new-music performers who are living and working in Europe.
Presenter Ivan Hewett is joined in the studio by Daryl Buckley, artistic director of Elision Ensemble.
