Paul Griffiths' Reality Street novel let me tell you has been condensed into a poem that has been set for soprano and orchestra by Hans Abrahamsen. Here, the composer talks with Paul and with Barbara Hannigan, the soprano, who was evidently key to putting this project together.

The composition itself is a beautiful piece of about 30 minutes in length, and for a short while at least you can listen to a performance (with the Berlin Philharmonic) broadcast on Portuguese radio.
