Joey Roukens World Première
Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom

Britten Sinfonia

Joey Roukens has emerged as one of finest young composers on the Dutch music scene. His works are examples of different genres of music coexisting in a natural way whether it be new or old styles, high culture or popular culture, western or non-western music.

In this hour-long concert we hear a new work from Roukens co-commissioned by Britten Sinfonia and Wigmore Hall alongside music by Lou Harrison and Shostakovich.

Lou Harrison : Varied Trio for violin, piano and percussion
Joey Roukens : New Work
Dmitri Shostakovich : Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor Op. 67

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Baldur Brönnimann conductor
Netia Jones director / designer and video artist
with illustrations from Ralph Steadman

Lewis Carroll’s beloved, dreamlike stories are startlingly re-imagined in this UK premiere production of Unsuk Chin’s operatic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

A glittering and crazed work by Chin and librettist David Henry Hwang, the riotous exhilaration and jet-black humour of the score meet their match tonight in Netia Jones’s tour de force production.

Celebrated for her innovative multimedia creations, including Britten’s Curlew River at St Giles Cripplegate in 2013, director/designer/video artist Jones realises her vision of the composer’s surreal take on Carroll by combining the darkly imaginative illustrations of gonzo-artist Ralph Steadman with live action, interactive animated projections, eye-popping costumes and choreography.

Please note that this production is not suitable for under-12s.

Magnus Lindberg World Première
Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1

Leila Josefowicz violin
John Novacek piano

Schumann’s subjective reflections and the personal psychological torments expressed in his Violin Sonata No. 1 set the concentrated mood for this recital.

Leila Josefowicz and John Novacek also bring Magnus Lindberg’s Wigmore Hall commission to life and explore the pulsating rhythms and shifting patterns of John Adams’s Road Movies. Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür’s rip-roaring Conversio completes this irresistible programme mix.

Robert Schumann : Sonata for violin and piano No. 1 in A minor Op. 105

Total Immersion: Boulez at 90
Barbican Hall, London
Barbican, Silk Street, London EC2
United Kingdom
020 7638 8891

Pierre Boulez is one of the most important voices in post-war European culture. As a composer he has defined the sound of 20th and 21st century music; as conductor he has re-defined the possibilities of Mahler, Wagner and more; as cultural thinker he has shaken up the establishment; and as a teacher he has inspired the next generation. In 2015 we celebrate his 90th year with a BBC Symphony Orchestra Total Immersion day and concerts by the London Symphony Orchestra and the pioneering Ensemble Intercontemporain, founded by Boulez himself in 1976.
