Portrait of Enno Poppe conducted by Franck Ollu and presented by Julian Anderson, in conversation with the composer.
A composer with strong rhythmic drive, Poppe also has an ear for the strangest instrumental combinations. His music drifts in and out of Western tuning, adding to the generally surrealistic atmosphere. A chance to hear a leading younger talent from central Europe.
