André de Ridder, Damon Albarn and sinfonia ViVA in rehearsal.

For those not so familiar with the UK's classical music scene, ViVA is the name of the long-running orchestra currently conducted by André de Ridder (the leader of Monkey: Journey To The West orchestra).

On February 1st, ViVA will perform two short pieces written by Damon Albarn at Leicester's new performing arts centre, Curve.

As part of ViVA's new commissions series, Damon's pieces are imaginately titled as "New Commission 1" and "New Commission 2". These pieces will be performed in-between violist Antje Wiethass' sets.
