LPO residency continues

LPO residency continues As Julian Anderson takes up a new post at the Wigmore Hall, he also continues an existing one with the London Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he has been composer in residence since 2010. This season sees the revival of two of Anderson’s much-loved orchestral pieces. The Stations of the Sun proves its popularity with no less than its third performance with the LPO – it will be performed on 7 December as part of a retrospective of seminal British works from the 1990s including MacMillan, Turnage and Adès. Alleluia – a 15-minute work for chorus and orchestra, first performed in 2007 to mark the re-opening of London’s Royal Festival Hall – will be given another chance to shine on 1 March alongside Beethoven’s 9th. The residency continues next season with the world premiere of Anderson’s violin concerto, which he is composing for violinist Carolin Widmann
