A celebration of the long relationship between the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Julian Anderson, this disc includes two world premiere recordings of works he wrote for the ensemble during his tenure as composer-in-residence. ‘It’s a very responsive orchestra,’ says Anderson, ‘and they treat contemporary music just as they would any repertoire – which is exactly what a composer wants.’
