Episode 17, 2020: Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to Orchestra
Friday 11 December 2020
For his final year as ANAM’s Artistic Director, Nick Deutsch originally planned to start and end the year performing with the complete ANAM cohort and faculty. However, 2020 had other plans. Yet as he proved, “no pandemic will stand in our way”. In this special episode of ANAM Radio, Phil Lambert (ANAM Music Librarian) talks to the people who took on the mammoth task of putting together ANAM’s 2020 finale video from different living rooms and studios around the world. Nick and Alistair McLean (ANAM Recording and Online Coordinator) share how they worked with ANAM’s faculty and musicians to bring to life a brilliant performance of a piece that poses different challenges in the unusual 2020 set-up for musical performances.
The performance you are about the see was premiered in ANAM’s 2020 end of year celebration on Zoom on 29 November 2020. Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to Orchestra is performed by the ANAM Orchestra, and edited by Alistair Mclean and Tom Marley by permission of Boosey and Hawkes Music Publishers Ltd., and all rights administered by Hal Leonard Australia.
