Two lovers find themselves trapped in a bitter power battle, a demonstration of humanity's appalling capacity for hatred that will eventually tear them apart. This intense tale of love, heartbreak and obsessive manipulation exposes the raw, primeval foundations that lurk beneath all our carefully manicured lives.

Heiner Müller took inspiration from Laclos' Les Liaisons dangereuses for his 1980 play Quartett, and Francesconi set it almost word for word in this chamber opera, using his own English translation. Quartett was acclaimed at its 2011 premiere at La Scala, Milan, praised for its unique and profoundly affecting musical vocabulary. The UK premiere uses a new staging created by director John Fulljames for the Linbury Studio Theatre. It is the second of two major music theatre collaborations that bookend the London Sinfonietta season.

As delightful as they are dark, fairy tales fire the imaginations of every generation. Composers have never been able to resist their appeal. Here the Hallé offers an enchanting afternoon which opens with the overture to Humperdinck’s ginger-bread opera, 'Hansel and Gretel', and includes music from Ravel’s 'Mother Goose'.

Coming right up to date, there will be a premiere of a new piece based on Hans Christian Andersen’s 'The Wild Swans' – written specially for the Hallé Children’s Choir, featuring young actors from Manchester Metropolitan University, as well as over 200 young singers from Greater Manchester.

NEW LONDON CHAMBER ENSEMBLE

Mozart and Machines could be the subtitle to this intriguing programme of music for wind instruments. Beginning with arrangements for wind quintet of works that Mozart wrote originally for mechanical organ and glass harmonica, it ends with the beloved Serenade for 13 winds (well, actually 12 winds and double bass). Philip Cashian’s rhythmic, witty work takes its inspiration from another mechanical curiosity, Settala’s Machine, a 17th century mechanical devil.

50 years after Robert Moog first presented his monophonic synthesizer to the world, Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory brings together no fewer than 10 Moogs on stage.

With a lineup including composer Graham Fitkin and Portishead’s Adrian Utley, the Ensemble performs Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 3, excerpts from John Carpenter’s sci-fi fantasy Escape From New York and a new piece by Gregory featuring a specially developed device that synchronises the synths together like a huge player piano. The second half features a score by Will Gregory played live to a poignant film The Service Of Tim Henman.

The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble first performed together in 2005 as part of the Bath Festival, recreating some of the ‘Switched on Bach’ arrangements of Wendy Carlos in the Seventies. As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, the keyboard-player and composer Will Gregory is one of the UK’s leading advocates of using synthesizers and electronic instruments to create new sounds and reinvent old ones. The band perform a mixture of specially composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film scores.

Okeanos is an ensemble which mixes traditional Japanese instruments, such as koto, sho and shamisen, with western ones. They open this event with a taste of traditional Japanese music, before composer Nicola LeFanu and librettist Nancy Gaffield discuss how this distinctive soundworld influenced the creation of this new multimedia opera, Tokaido Road.

Taking its name from the series of vivid woodblock prints by Japanese artist Hiroshige, the opera brings Hiro – the figure present in every picture – to life. Journeying from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto against a backdrop of old and new images, Hiro tells of his encounters – humorous, amorous, tragic – through mime, dance, speech and song.

ENSEMBLE MODERN

Manfred Trojahn, a lover of the French language, has dedicated a song cycle to the surrealist poet René Char whom he greatly admires. L’Éternité à Lourmarin (Eternity at Lourmarin), a work for soprano and chamber music ensemble, is inspired by the poem of the same name that Char wrote to honour his friend Albert Camus who died in a car accident at Lourmarin where he had bought a house.

L’Allégresse (Elation), based on a prose poem, was specially written for the French soprano Sabine Devieilhe. The title suggests a light-hearted, happy mood but it ends on a serious question: will we know, when death comes to meet us, whether the heart, this gleaner, has to go before or follow?

A third work for orchestra, Contrevenir (Counterstatement), written in December 2012 and based on René Char’s mysterious poem, will be given in Aix. For the Festival, Manfred Trojahn has extended his score with a prologue that will also be performed for the first time by Sabine Devieilhe.
