This Scenic Journey

Elizabeth Alker with music by an exciting new generation of unclassified composers and performers, breaking free of the constraints of practice rooms and concert halls.

In the last episode of this series, Elizabeth Alker completes this scenic journey by shining a torch into some of the less well-lit corners of contemporary music and lingering in its contemplative quiet places.

The kaleidoscopic piano playing of Anne Lovett collides with soaring cello from Oliver Coates, Phil Selway from Radiohead writes emotionally stirring music to soundtrack the film Let Me Go, Dada Meets Disco on the brand new album from Sone Institute, the shape and flow of Bach’s cello suites are infused with new energy thanks to cellist Peter Gregson and Four Tet remixes Daniel Avery.
