BBC Concert Orchestra with Francesco Tristano
19 Nov 2016
LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
Formerly known as the Laura Jurd Quartet, a new band awakens from the jaws of extinction.
They are Dinosaur and they join the BBC Concert Orchestra tonight to give you an evening of fiery sonic experimentation and abstraction.
BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Laura Jurd has a passion for “making things up” and today’s concert opens with her new work for orchestra & Dinosaur, combining influences from both classical music and jazz. We also hear a new work by the astonishing Norwegian tuba player and composer Daniel Herskedal, who defies the conventions of his chosen instrument, both technically and sonically – a mesmerising performer, and a hugely talented composer.
