Tom Service, BBC Radio 3 New Music Show

Duncan Honeybourne presents a selection of pieces from his collection Contemporary Piano Soundbites: Composers in Lockdown 2020. During the 2020 Lockdown Duncan commissioned over 30 piano miniatures from an eclectic mix of composers, ranging from distinguished senior figures to younger and emerging composers. Described by Tom Service on BBC Radio 3’s New Music Show as “a dazzling explosion of creativity”, a selection was released on Prima Facie Records in November 2020. The pieces have been broadcast frequently on Radio 3 and in Belgium, Portugal and the USA. Today’s selection includes pieces by John Casken, John McLeod, David Power, David Lancaster, Sadie Harrison and Adam Gorb.

There is a short playlist on Spotify with samples from the collection.
