Sir Harrison Birtwistle: Shedworker (video)

We've mentioned Sir Harrison Birtwistle's garden office before but here's a marvellous short video by Gripping Films showing him at work in it. Here's what they say about it:
"To coincide with my godfather Harry’s 80th birthday, the website Sinfini commissioned Gripping Films to produce a ten minute film about him composing a piano concerto, at home in his shed in Wiltshire. Shot over a few days last summer before I set off for Mexico and edited a month ago after we finished editing bats with my long-time collaborator editor Sabrina Burnard, we’re thrilled with the film. It premiered at the Barbican Centre in London as part of a festival of Harry’s work. It was a great thrill to see so many people who love Harry’s music, and watch them gripped by this new window into his creative process and life."
