George Benjamin curates a series of three concerts with the London Sinfonietta and Arditti Quartet continuing his exploration of the works of a range of international composers, including new London Sinfonietta commission from award-winning composer Unsuk Chin.
In this concert, the world premiere of Chin's Cantatrix Sopranica precedes Benjamin's appearance as solo pianist and a rare performance of the shimmering reflections of Boulez's Éclat/Multiples.
