London-based French pianist / composer Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch was commissioned by the London Contemporary Orchestra to write a new piece for a string ensemble for the BBC Proms. The piece, entitled ‘Minutes’ was premiered last week on one of BBC Radio 3’s live Proms shows and you can listen back to the piece here (it’s the first track on the show). Described as being “approximately 8 minutes long, it is written for a string ensemble consisting of 1 violin, 2 violas, 3 cellos, 1 double bass and live electronics”.
