Radius back at the Wigmore Hall

Time to start filling up that 2008 diary you just bought. Radius, the new new music ensemble I featured earlier in the year, are back at the Wigmore Hall in January. The group will perform a programme of new works by leading composers of the new British generation, including Ian Vine, Paul Newland, Larry Goves, and Radius founder Tim Benjamin, alongside works by internationally acclaimed composers James Tenney, Claude Vivier, Morton Feldman, and Iannis Xenakis. The concert will also feature 50:50, a series of short commissions celebrating the 50th birthday of Simon Holt.

One thought on “Radius back at the Wigmore Hall

  1. What a tempting offering! (And love the poster, too.) If I weren’t already committed to being in New York that night for the reopening of Merkin Hall (a small venue here, popular with new music groups), I’d be there. Your comments have made me curious about their recording, too.
