LUTON is clearly the place for promoting new sounds: the town's 'Music on Mondays', outstanding among the nation's music clubs for its sense of adventure, celebrates its 1,500th concert on 22 February with premieres from six composers. Five of them, Antony Hopkins, John McCabe, Christopher Wiggins, Christopher Brown and Stephen Dodgson, have written a special set of variations; Michael Berkeley has contributed two unpublished lullabies. Also this season, Tippett and Panufnik (25 January), and next Monday the London Chinese Orchestra.
