Kate Molleson presents a second programme of highlights from Tectonics Glasgow.
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra premiere works by Ashley Fure, Evan Johnson, Marc Sabat and Kristin Thora Haraldsdottir and Anton Lukoszevieze performs a work written for cello and tape by one of Lithuania's leading 'super-minimalist' composers.
Ashley Fure finds inspiration in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner whilst Haraldsdottir explores dark, natural tunings and Marc Sabat investigates the sounding and perception of Just Intonation in 'gradually shifting harmonic constellations.' Evan Johnson's new work explores the very margins of sound and silence with a work for eighty five players who offer up an almost colourless palette.

Ashley Fure: Bound to Bow (European premiere)
Evan Johnson: measurement as contrition: three canons (WP)
Kristin Thora Haraldsdottir: In Praise of Darkness (UKP)
Marc Sabat: The Luminiferous Aether
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Ilan Volkov (conductor)

Rytis Mazulis: Solipse (WP)
Anton Lukoszevieze (cello and tape).
