The second, more sinister, piece is by British composer Dave Heath, depicting the overpowering ‘size, energy, and weirdness’ of the Big Apple.
A solitary oboe weaves around drums, bells and gongs, filling the air with an Eastern aroma in Lou Harrison’s Music for Remy, a perfectly crafted sparseness mirrored in Graham Fitkin’s Distil.
Mix and match with the two other concerts in the same afternoon to sample something new.
This event is one of three half-hour Southbank Sinfonia Mini Concerts taking place on Sunday 3 May. Purchase tickets to all three concerts in the same transaction for a total of £10.
