Sonic Fusion Festival, London Ear Festival

With Sara Mohr-Pietsch. Italian music from Salford's Sonic Fusion Festival and London Ear Festival featuring flautist Roberto Fabbriciani and FLAME ensemble. Plus Sleeping Beauty.

Sarah Mohr-Pietsch presents a programme with a focus on Italian and French music, featuring performances from two recent UK festivals. From the Sonic Fusion Festival in Salford last weekend, the Italian flute virtuoso Roberto Fabbriciani plays music by Bruno Maderna and others who've extended the possibilities of flute sonority since the mid twentieth-century - including Fabbriciani himself. The same weekend saw the first-ever London Ear Festival, from which you can hear highlights of an Italian-centred programme by the FLAME ensemble, based in Florence. Plus the world premiere performance, recorded recently in Cologne, of Das Dornröschen - Sleeping Beauty - for string quartet, chorus and orchestra, by French composer Brice Pauset: Matthias Pintscher conducts the forces of West German Radio with the Arditti Quartet.
