Downie- forms 6:event aggregates Radio 3 broadcast

For those of you who followed the suprising controversy surrounding my interview with composer Gordon Downie with interest, his orchestral work “forms 6: event aggregates” will be the featured work on this week’s Pre-Hear on BBC Radio 3.

The show is at 9:45 PM GMT on Saturday, April 5 and can be heard via the R3 website as well as on terrestrial radio. 

forms 6 is performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under my good friend Grant Llewellyn. It’s a very different piece from either of the works that featured on the Contemporary Music Ensemble of Wales program last month- piano piece 3 and forms 7. Those will be broadcast on Hear and Now on April 19th.

UPDATE- The archived broadcast can be heard for the rest of this week here.
