London Sinfonietta Presents: Stockhausen's Gruppen

Three orchestras over one stage...it's going to be big

Combining the power of three orchestras means that more than 100 musicians will fill the stage at the Royal Festival Hall. A daunting thought. Then add to this the fact that they'll be performing Luigi Nono’s post-war meditations on the qualities of silence, and Stockhausen’s serial composition Gruppen, and it gets even more epic. Nono and Stockhausen became leaders of the avant-garde new music movement in the 1950s. Gruppen is a shifting score full of colour and texture, ebbing and flowing between instruments. This is a rare opportunity to see this dramatic soundscape performed. Seating allocated on arrival.
