I now have full details of the BBC Phil. concert conducted by James Macmillan which includes my piece Search Engines. It’s an Invitation Concert in Studio 7, BBC Manchester (in Oxford Road) on Friday 23rd February, starting at 7.30.
Tickets are free, and need to be reserved by calling the BBC Philharmonic ticket line on 0161 244 4002, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The programme consists of four new pieces:
Christian Mason, …from bursting suns escaping…
Jeremy Thurlow, Search Engines
Symon Clarke, Statue Circle
Matthew Brooks, Event horizon
There’s an intriguing suggestion of common ground between the four titles, and it will be fascinating to hear the four (entirely independent and unprompted) approaches to the themes of discovery, technology and nature. (For a short note about the ideas behind my piece, see the programme notes page and scroll down to ‘Orchestral Music’.)
The concert will be recorded; it may later be broadcast and if so I’ll post up details as soon as I hear them.
Music by Jeremy Thurlow
