Fri 22 Jul 2016 13.00

Hear the world premiere of Kurt Schwertsik's Eine Windrose für Mauricio - an RPS co-commission with BBC Radio 3 as part of the New Generation Artists Scheme - in this Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert Series broadcast. The work for solo cello was premiered at Cheltenham Music Festival on 14 July by cellist, Narek Hakhnazaryan. Schwertsik dedicated his piece to composer, Mauricio Kagel. He notes: "My little compass neither tries to apporximate Kagel's aesthetic, nor his compositional technique. It's just a little Serenade in his memory. Who knows, he might find it amusing?"Tune in to BBC Radio 3 at 13.00 on Friday 22 July
