Julian Anderson premiere

It seems to be Julian Anderson's time: not only is his opera Thebans playing at the London Coliseum until 3 June, but on 15 May the Arditti Quartet will present the world premiere of Anderson's String Quartet No. 2 300 Weihnachtslieder at the Wigmore Hall. Anderson says that the new quartet celebrates 'both the Arditti's wonderous playing and my affection for old German Christmas Songs'. The Arditti Quartet will also be playing music by Scelsi, Lachenmann and Kurtag. Further Ahead, Members of London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Clement Power, will perform Anderson's Book of Hours at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 9 June, in a a programme which includes George Lewis's The Will to Adorn and music by current members of the LPO's Leverhulme Young Composers Programme.
