Celebrating composers that go against the grain
The London Contemporary Music Festival is back for a second year, and hopefully for many more to come. Tonight, they’re looking at the popular song and the limits of the voice. Josephine Foster reinterprets songs by Shubert, Schumann, and Brahms as American folk ballads, whilst artist/poet legend John Giorno reflects on collabs with the likes of Warhol and Burroughs. General admission.
"The capital's most adventurous and ambitious festival of new music."
