In this video series The Composer's Mind, we meet the composers behind London Sinfonietta's rich programme of newly commissioned repertoire. In this episode, we speak to Ed Nesbit about his interests and musical influences and how they have affected his own compositions, including his interest in vocal music. Ed tells us about his Viola Concerto, with an insight into his compositional process and work with London Sinfonietta principal viola Paul Silverthorne.
