Thrilled that Jonathan Dove's community opera The Monster in the Maze won the British Composer Awards Amateur and Young Performer category at the BASCA awards ceremony last night.

A joint commission between the LSO, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and the Berliner Philharmoniker, the opera was written for the professionals and local amateur singers and musicians from each city to perform together. Congratulations Jonathan and everyone involved in the creation and production of this work.

Here's a short documentary.

Composer John Adams has long found inspiration in violinist Leila Josefowicz, so it was wonderful to be able to talk to them both together about John's violin concerto for Leila Scheherazde.2. Coming to the Barbican Hall with the LSO on 8 December! http://bit.ly/2fyKlHb
