SALLY BEAMISH’S NEW CONCERTO ‘DISTANS’ PREMIERES IN LONDON AND OSLO

After the successful world premiere of the new double concerto ‘Distans’ by Sally Beamish in Stockholm with the Swedish Radio Orchestra last May, the British and Norwegian premieres are taking place this season; at the Barbican Centre on 25 November and Oslo’s Munchmuseet on 8 December. Written in the solitude of lockdown but inspired, as the composer says, “by Janine Jansen and Martin Fröst, who are both exceptional communicators, and who each have compelling onstage presence”, the concerto will be performed in London with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda, and the Oslo Philharmonic and its Chief Conductor Klaus Mäkelä.
