Yuko Ohara: Kaleidoscope
Laura Bowler: Irresistible Demands Of The Flesh
BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Garry Walker

and from an LPO Debut Sounds concert:
Emily Wright: Incantation
Erik Flores: Foliage

Plus in this week's Hear And Now Fifty, Gillian Moore advocates George Benjamin's At First Light, a chamber orchestral score of "extraordinary detail and skill"; while Paul Griffiths describes the significance of the work as a benchmark for British composing.
