Concerts

Radius no longer directly gives concerts. However, when we did...

A Radius chamber music concert typically involved pairing world premieres (indicated by an asterisk in the detailed listings below) of works by living composers with works by 20th century masters.

A high quality printed programme containing details notes, essays, and photographs along with the usual biographies was provided, often free of charge; PDFs of these programmes are linked below. Radius concerts were also been accompanied by eye-catching posters, also reproduced here.

Wigmore Hall, London: 18th June 2009

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, and the 150 years since the first publication of "On the Origin of Species", the programme features different approaches to "chance" in music (Cage, Boulez, Newland), bird-song (Messiaen), and a new semi-staged work dramatising Darwin's letters from the Beagle, by Tim Benjamin.

The Paul Newland piece, Montonous Forest, was commissioned by Radius with funds provided by the Britten-Pears Foundation.
