Northern Lights: Emily Hall, John Luther Adams

Robert Worby and Sara Mohr-Pietsch present new music by Emily Hall and John Luther Adams as part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season.

As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season, Robert Worby and Sara Mohr-Pietsch present new music by the British composer Emily Hall, inspired by and incorporating recordings from a trip to the most northerly part of the UK, the Shetland isle of Unst.

American composer John Luther Adams talks to Tom McKinney about his recent work Ilimaq, an electro-acoustic collaboration with Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, evoking the northern territories of Alaska in North America.

And continuing our coverage of this year's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the group Apartment House perform John Cage's Hymnkus, whose title combines the words hymn and haikus, reflecting of the work's construction.
