Mario Caroli flute

Terrestre, new to this country, is a bewitching flute concerto, inspired by the flight and songs of birds. Lichtbogen, a classic, combining live instruments and electronics, is a haunting evocation of the Northern Lights (the title means 'arcs of light').

Presented by Julian Anderson in conversation with Susanna Eastburn, Artistic Director of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
