London Sinfonietta 50th Anniversary Concert
Part of Classical Season
50 years to the day since the orchestra played its first concert, the London Sinfonietta celebrates its birthday with the music that has shaped its identity – past, present and future.
Co-founder David Atherton joins George Benjamin and Vladimir Jurowski in conducting a journey that begins with the music of Stravinsky, Ligeti and Birtwistle, courses through to the London premiere of Hans Abrahamsen’s piano concerto Left, alone and peers into the future with a new commission by RPS award-winning composer Samantha Fernando.
Join the ensemble, along with alumni from the London Sinfonietta Academy, and see what the next 50 years have in store.
