The Nash Ensemble offer 'A Portrait of Elliott Carter' at the Purcell Room on the South Bank tonight (19.30). This intimate tribute to one of America's (and the twentieth century's) most important and characteristically idiosyncratic compositional talents unfortunately coincides with the enterprising Britten Sinfonia's unusual renditions of John Adams and John Zorn a few feet away at the Queen Elizabeth Hall (19.45) -- as previously averted on NFE. Ticket details at the RFH website. An uneviable choice, but one which proves that, in Britain's (music) capital city you can have too much of a good thing. Delicious...
