Il programma radiofonico della BBC Hear and Now ha proposto ieri sera ampie porzioni del concerto tenuto a Glasgow il 22 febbraio scorso da Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Frith e George Lewis: erano con la BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra diretta da Ilan Volkov, presentando ciascuno una propria composizione per orchestra, cui ha fatto seguito una breve improvvisazione in trio. La puntata, che contiene anche una conversazione con Frith, si riascolta per qualche giorno in http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0414dm7

In a concert devised and recorded specially for Hear and Now, Ilan Volkov conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in works by three important figures from the world of new music and improvisation. Roscoe Mitchell, founding member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, brings a new arrangement of his work NONAAH; we hear the world premiere of Memex by trombonist and computer music pioneer George Lewis; and English guitar experimentalist Fred Frith is the soloist in his 2003 work The Right Angel. The concert also includes an improvised set by all three musicians.
