We were delighted to hear that the orchestral work Fantasias by Julian Anderson, the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Composer in Residence, won the Orchestral Music category in last night’s 2011 British Composer Awards, held at Stationers’ Hall, London.
Fantasias will be performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Vladimir Jurowski at Royal Festival Hall this Saturday, 3 December, at 7.30pm, alongside works by Mozart and Tchaikovsky. There will also be a free pre-concert discussion at 6.15pm in which Julian introduces his work.

Julian also won the Liturgical Music prize for his Bell Mass. The awards will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in Sunday Concert on Sunday 4 December from 2pm.
