Elision Ensemble at the 2011 City of London Festival
Ivan Hewett presents the Elision Ensemble in concert at the 2011 City of London Festival. With new music by Australian composers, including David Lumsdaine and John Rodgers.
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.
