London Sinfonietta

Resident at Southbank Centre

Louis Andriessen: Anaïs Nin for singer, ensemble & film (UK premiere)
Louis Andriessen: De Staat

Dutch composer Louis Andriessen's music is known for his idiosyncratic instrumental combinations and the combined influences of jazz and minimalism with dissonance, amplification and energetic rhythms. The UK premiere of Anaïs Nin, his new work for singer, ensemble and film, is paired with De Staat, a large-scale musical tour de force influenced by the energy of big band music and minimalistic rhythms.

This concert contains explicit content and language and is recommended for ages 16 and over.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the pre-concert talk in The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall at 6:15pm has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
