London Sinfonietta - Stockhausen: Trans

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

Trans came to Stockhausen in a dream, and this extraordinary orchestral masterpiece is every bit as dream-like in performance. The conductor is invisible, half the orchestra is hidden behind a vividly lit gauze, and those left in view are instructed to move like puppets. As listeners we are held in a trance, caught somewhere between the real and the imaginary, the present and the future.

It is with great regret that, owing to compositional commitments, Oliver Knussen feels he must withdraw from the Stockhausen concert on Wednesday 6 December 2017. We are pleased to announce that Pascal Rophé is joining the London Sinfonietta and the Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble to conduct the project.
