Martyn Brabbins conductor
London Sinfonietta

London Sinfonietta has been in an extended duet with Sir Harrison Birtwistle for over 45 years, a relationship that has been reflected in an evolving series of commissions for pairs of Principal Players. This journey reaches its peak with the world premiere of Five Lessons in a Frame, in which five of these duets are linked by a new chorale. As relationships with Tansy Davies and Francisco Coll also continue, so a new one begins with a commission from Tom Coult, one of the most promising young voices of his generation, praised for his iridescent timbres and clear, articulate gestures.
