Southbank Sinfonia

Part of Friday Tonic

Kick start your weekend with an hour of daring music that stops you in your tracks.

Ensembles from Southbank Sinfonia, an orchestra of young professionals, perform a selection of propulsive chamber music by some of the most inventive composers of the moment.

Mason Bates, composer for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, mixes string quartet with jagged electronic beats in Rough Math, while Kanye West collaborator Caroline Shaw's Entr'acte is fuelled by subtle rhythmic shifts.
