Vale of Glamorgan Festival 2013

Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 20 July 2013

Music by Graham Fitkin and Juste Janulyte recorded at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival. Fitkin's extrovert ballet 'Mindset', with its 'hints of Shakespearean ribaldry and Ealing comedy brawl' is paired with his more quiet and controlled Cello Concerto. Sandwiched between the two is Lithuanian composer Juste Janulyte's 'Elongation of Nights', whose sound, she says, is 'like a utopian 84-string instrument'. Presented by Ivan Hewett in conversation with Graham Fitkin.
