China National Symphony Orchestra perform Latimer’s Antiarkie

Ryan Latimer’s Antiarkie, originally composed for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, is to receive it’s Chinese premiere with the China National Symphony Orchestra on Saturday 19th May as part of the 2018 ISCM World New Music Days and will take place at the National Centre for the Performing Arts, hosted by the Beijing Modern Music Festival.

About Antiarkie:
The title refers to the composer, Scott Bradley, famous for his exuberant Tom and Jerry scores, who despite being from Arkansas was careful to point out he was not in fact an ‘Arkie’ – a diminutive term for a migrant worker from the state. There is also a suggestion of the Greek word ‘archi’, meaning authority or establishment. Considering Bradley spent much of his career as a relative outsider, dedicated to his own niche corner of the industry whilst remaining well in-tune with the ‘serious’ developments occurring within the European avant-garde, the invented term Antiarkie (read Anarchic) seems a suitably playful homage to his legacy.
