London-based French pianist / composer Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch​ has been commissioned by the London Contemporary Orchestra​ to write a piece for a string ensemble. Described as being “approximately 8 minutes long, written for a string ensemble consisting of 1 violin, 2 violas, 3 cellos, 1 double bass and live electronics”, the piece will be premiered in the beautifully resonant space of the Tanks at the Tate Modern​ on 6th September, as part of the BBC Proms​.

The programme also includes a collaboration between the LCO and London-based electronic artist Actress; new work by Catherine Lamb; Cassandra Miller’s evocative, folk-inspired Guide performed by vocal ensemble Exaudi; and Rodrigo Constanzo’s dynamic performances with light and sound. It will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
