Ether Festival

Saturday 25 June 2005 23:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Now in its third year, the London Sinfonietta's collaboration with cutting edge electronic artists continues to fill concert halls with its juxtaposition of contemporary classical, electronic and newly commissioned arrangements.

This year, the focus was on the music of Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, with the world premiere of Piano for Children and the London premiere of smear, and new arrangements of the music of his band with singer Thom Yorke.

Movements from Henri Dutilleux's Ainsi la Nuit are woven in alongside music by György Ligeti, Olivier Messiaen, Mohammed Abdel-Wahab and Krystof Penderecki. Presented by Sarah Walker.

Also tonight, Verity Sharp reports on a collaboration between the Tacet Ensemble and traditional English folk musicians The Copper Family.

Duration:

2 hours
