Music of Today: Luke Bedford

Reading time: 1 min. Luke Bedford

Two works by composer Luke Bedford are being performed as part of the Philharmonia Orchestra's Music of Today series on Thursday, 6 December at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

The composer describes the six movements of Or Voit Tout En Aventure as “settings of three texts written in medieval French and Italian, which are linked in some way by the theme of music. They all exist as songs written in the latter part of the 14th century, which I have shamelessly torn from their original musical context and treated purely as texts.” For By the Screen in the Sun at the Hill on the Gold, Bedford tried to capture “the ‘essence’ of Johannesburg”.
