Q&A with composer/conductor Oliver Knussen

"It's going to be a very British affair at Benaroya Hall next week, when English composer-conductor Oliver Knussen leads the Seattle Symphony in performances of Benjamin Britten's "Canadian Carnival," his Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia (from his opera "Peter Grimes"), Luke Bedford's "Outblaze the Sky," and Knussen's own Violin Concerto (with Leila Josefowicz as soloist). Along with that lush violin concerto, several Knussen chamber works are on the bill with works by Elgar and Brahms in the Symphony's Nov. 20 chamber-music series."
