New Music Biennial
Staged by the PRS for Music Foundation in association with BBC Radio 3 and to coincide with Hull UK City of Culture 2017, the New Music Biennial showcases new and recent works from a wide range of composers and commissioners in two special events over consecutive weekends, in venues across Hull and London's Southbank Centre. Tonight's programme includes some of the twenty works featured, in recordings made at various locations over the first two days of the Hull event. The programme is presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch and broadcast live from Fruit, a venue in the heart of Hull's cultural quarter.
