Festival Details - "Unclassified Live: Matthew Herbert"...

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

The BBC Concert Orchestra performs the music of Matthew Herbert in a live concert version of Elizabeth Alker’s cult Radio 3 programme.

With conductor André de Ridder, the orchestra brings the freshest contemporary music out of the studio and into the concert hall.

There are no boundaries to the way Herbert uses sound. The composer makes music out of everything from a banana to the life cycle of a pig.

His book The Music: a Novel Through Sound describes an imagined album in a manifesto for sound’s potential to describe the world:

‘Crack – the snap of twenty-four chopsticks pulled apart in Japan. The bang of claws and feathers into metal as a peacock attacks its own reflection in the passenger door of a black car. The sizzle of a cow’s rump being branded with a hot iron.’
