Sinfonia 21 world premieres

THE final concert of the Sinfonia 21 2000/2001 season includes world premieres at the Cheltenham Festival on 11 July by two of the UK's most important composers.

Julian Anderson's Shir Hashrim is a setting of the Song of Songs which respond to the text of the Old Testament, and is his final work as composer in residence. His previous Sinfonia 21 commission was The Bird Sings With Its Fingers.

Jonathan Harvey, renowned for his use of new technology, has created Bird Concerto With Pianosong, a work of characteristically rich invention, using a digital mixer which allows continuous real time modification of pitches and timbres to be dispersed through the auditorium by speakers.

He will demonstrate the technology of Bird Concerto in the recital hall of the Royal College of Music from 14.00-17.00 Thursday, 5 July.
