British composer Joseph Phibbs was commissioned by Anvil Arts and the Philharmonia Orchestra to write a new symphonic work for The Anvil, Basingstoke's 18th Birthday celebrations and to mark the continuing relationship with the Philharmonia Orchestra as The Anvil's Orchestra in Partnership. We met with Joseph Phibbs while he was writing his new work, Rivers to the Sea, to get special insight into the composition process.
