Luke BedfordThis week, Oliver Knussen conducts Luke Bedford’s Outblaze The Sky with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra (17 and 19 Nov).

In an interview for the Seattle Times, Knussen says:

“[Bedford] writes music that is at the same time highly abstract in structure and very poetic in sound and resonance. ‘Outblaze the Sky’ is a short piece which is, in effect, a single big crescendo. He writes beautifully for orchestra, and the harmonic world is beautiful and distinctive. And it’s practical and relatively easy to put together!”
