The ever enterprising London Sinfonietta has announced "an exploration of the realtionship between virtuosity and live electronics" for one night only at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. Works featured include Pierre Boulez's 'Anthemes 2' (solo violinist Clio Gould surrounded by "an army of sonorities", Jonathan Harvey's 'Birdsong' for interactive electronics, ensemble and piano (Joanna MacGregor), and the UK premiere of Matthias Pintscher's 'Tenebrae' featuring Paul Silverthorne (viola) and the work of Sound Intermedia, using IRCAM technology. It takes place at 7.45 on 23 April 2003.

If you can't wait that long, and have broadband access, go to 3D Music, "a cyber-symphony that remains unfinished until you are ready to put down the baton" (New York Times). This is a London Sinfonietta and Braunarts collaboration.
