London Philharmonic Orchestra: Schnittke’s Vision Of The Future

A true visionary’s work is revived tonight

The London Philharmonic Orchestra is celebrating 20th-century composition and tonight, they delve into the oblique and stark work of Alfred Schnittke. Embracing an emerging multimedia age, he worked traditionally and on the growing world of TV soundtracks, composing large soundscapes and energetic symphonies. He wasn’t afraid to experiment, his Symphony No. 1 is full of drama and mystical elements. Seating allocated on arrival. Latecomers may not be admitted. Free pre-concert event at 6:15pm, where conductor Michail Jurowski discusses the evening's programme in the Royal Festival Hall.
