Composer Raymond Yiu on his debut orchestral album

Friday, February 12, 2021

The Hong Kong-born, London-based composer talks about the three works on his first orchestral album, just released by Delphian

Raymond Yiu's music is featured on a new Delphian album featuring performances by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under David Robertson, Sir Andrew Davis and Edward Gardner. In this Gramophone Podcast, James Jolly talks to him about the inspiration and evolution of the three works: The London Citizen Exceedingly Injured, which takes its title from an early 18th-century pamphlet; Yiu's Symphony, a 2015 BBC Proms commission, and The World Was Once All Miracle, commissioned to commemorate the centenary of the author and composer Anthony Burgess.
