Presented by Bernard Clarke, Nova is about new composers, new trends and new audiences. All new music here and now, chronicling what’s radical and what’s conservative, who’s established and who’s in the avant garde. A blend of contemporary classical, electronic, experimental and more. Featuring composer interviews/profiles, Irish works, and concerts from home and abroad.
Coming up This Sunday November 20th…
This week’s Nova goes from one extreme to the other as we meet composer Raymond Deane and profile his new “Noctuary Book I” for solo piano (played by Hugh Tinney); and at the other extreme-Daniel Figgis’ “The Battle of Speeds-phase 1…an immersive, ultra-vivid, ultra-violet fantasy spectacle, featuring video with surround-sound”. Nova investigates.
The interview will be broadcast on 20 November at 9pm.
