Celebrating five years of new experimental and minimal music: concert series 840 at Cafe Oto

840 birthday concert at Cafe Oto
840 is a London-based concert series, curated by composers Alex Nikiporenko and James Luff, which for the last five years has been dedicated to new experimental and minimal music. They will be celebrating their fifth birthday at Cafe Oto on 31 January 2020. 

Soprano Juliet Fraser and a string ensemble will be performing new works by Laurence Crane (professor of composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama) and John Lely, (co-curator of the concert series Music We'd Like to Hear) both of whom are long-term friends of the series and whose music has featured in previous concerts. There will also be a selection from the many pieces written for 840 concerts including music by Georgia Rogers, Marc Sabat, Jonathan Cole, Nicholas Peters and Sergei Zagny, along with new pieces by curators Alex Nikiporenko and James Luff. Plus something from Juliet Fraser and composer Cassandra Miller's on-going collaboration, Tracery.

The concert is being recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast at a future date.
