LCO Soloists: The Hub Sessions II
Sunday 12 April 2015, 6pm
Roundhouse (Dorfman Hub), London
The Hub Sessions is a unique event-concept for those involved or interested in modern composition and performance. It offers opportunities for meeting composers, players, promoters and other practitioners working at the forefront of their fields. At each session an unperformed piece will be workshopped by LCO’s principal players and Composer-in-Association Edmund Finnis (please see below for full details). Around this, new and existing instrumental music for the same line-up will be presented to throw light on the ‘Call for Scores’ piece. Audience discussion with the musicians and composers is encouraged throughout the evening – the aim is to create an informal, open atmosphere.
Vivier Cinq Chansons Pour Percussion
interspersed with movements from:
Couperin Première Suite
Edmund Finnis Colour Field Painting
Liam Byrne (viola da gamba)
Sam Wilson (percussion)
Tickets: £9 advance (plus booking fee) / £15 on the door (no booking fee)

CALL FOR SCORES
London Contemporary Orchestra, in partnership with the Roundhouse, is pleased to announce its Call for Scores initiative as part of The Hub Sessions. Composers of any age and nationality are invited to submit previously unperformed works scored for the forces listed below.
Three pieces in total (one per date, with the third and final date to be announced) will be selected for public workshops at the Roundhouse, with the LCO’s principal players, led by Composer-in-Association Edmund Finnis.
All works will be professionally recorded, and these recordings will be made available to the composers shortly after the workshops. One of the three selected composers will receive a £1,000 commission from LCO Soloists for 2015/16.
