Faber composers at the the heart of British Music since WWII

Faber composers at the the heart of British Music since WWII
Every year the Julliard School, New York, presents an annual mid-winter festival of ‘new’ music, and this year’s theme, The British Renaissance: British Music Since World War II, offers the opportunity to explore a somewhat overlooked (at least in American terms) area of repertoire. The six free concerts, which run from 25 January to 1 February, showcase the breadth and wealth of Britain’s thriving contemporary music scene, with Faber composers featuring heavily. Highlights include the US premiere of Colin Matthews’ First World War-inspired orchestral work, No Man’s Land, and the New York premiere of Oliver Knussen’s Horn Concerto conducted by Mark Wigglesworth.
