Belgium bags Alvin Curran premiere

New music is alive and well in Belgium. Tomorrow (Dec 15) sees an Alvin Curran (photo above) premiere in Ghent played by pianist Daan Vandewalle (who featured in my Inner Cities webcast) and cellist Arne Deforce. The new Alvin Curran work is called Malapromptus. This is the programme, and more details here:

Anton Webern - Sonate 1914 (2')
Anton Webern - Drei Stucke opus 11, 1914 (2')
Morton Feldman - Durations II 1960 (5')
Edison Denisov - Drei Stücke 1967 (6')
Galina Ustvolskaya - Grand Duett 1959 (22')
Alvin Curran - Malapromtus 2007

Hear Daan Vandewalle talking to me about Alvin Curran's music here. And a double bill of new Belgian music here and here.
