Posts Tagged ‘Julian Lloyd Webber’

As a public radio listener, you’re probably well used to the Julian Lloyd Webber (Photo: julianlloydwebber.com)idea of news about music, even if NPR has gradually drifted toward reporting less from the classical world and more from the indie and alternative landscape. But music about news?

Next week (5 June 2008), audiences at the New Generation Arts Festival in Birmingham, England will watch and listen as cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, composer Michael Wolters, and a corps of conservatory students improvise a musical accompaniment to BBC4′s live 7pm newscast.

The idea is both new and old. After all, pianists improvised accompaniment for silent newsreels nearly a century ago. For his part, Webber says it’s strictly an experiment.

More from The Independent.
