Co-hosted by the Institute of Musical Research and Guildhall School, this one day event explores and celebrates the extraordinary achievements of one of Britain’s most inspirational musicians. Speakers including Julian Anderson, George Benjamin, Arnold Whittall and Edward Venn offer their perspective on Knussen’s music and his career as composer, conductor and teacher. This is an invaluable opportunity to place the music of Oliver Knussen in a wide and imaginative contact before hearing repertoire performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Guildhall students on Sunday 4 November at the Barbican.
