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 premiere of Abrahamsen's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra is followed by Grisey's hugely acclaimed and eerily prescient final work: a desolate, haunting musical meditation on death and the afterlife.
