Concert information

…explosante-fixe…, for flute with live electronics and ensemble, was given its UK Premiere in Edinburgh more than 20 years ago by Ensemble InterContemporain. The conductor on that occasion was Pierre Boulez himself, who next month will celebrate his 90th birthday. Here, Matthias Pintscher, Ensemble InterContemporain’s current music director, who is also the BBC SSO’s Artist-in-Association, brings together members of the BBC SSO and guest soloists for an evening which also features a work from one of Pintscher’s composition teachers, Manfred Trojahn, a recent composition from Serbian-born Marko Nikodijevic, and the UK Premiere of a horn concerto from Slovenian-born Vito Žuraj. To be recorded for future broadcast in BBC Radio 3’s Saturday night contemporary music programme, Hear and Now.
