London Symphony Orchestra

Russian pianist Denis Matsuev, acclaimed for his formidable virtuosity and the controlled power of his playing, is the LSO’s featured artist this season.

He opens the 2014/15 series with two all-Russian programmes under the LSO’s outgoing Music Director, Valery Gergiev. Here he tackles Prokofiev’s dazzling Third Concerto, between Shostakovich’s best-loved symphony and the first in a symphonic cycle inspired by Dante’s 'Divine Comedy' by one of Shostakovich’s most prolific pupils.

Tetzlaff Quartet

With its pervasive echoes of Schumann’s Papillons, sparky humour and wild conclusion, Jörg Widmann’s ‘Jagdquartett’ has secured a lasting place in the contemporary chamber music repertoire since its first performance in 2003.

The Tetzlaff Quartet’s programme also includes the second of Mozart’s ‘Haydn’ Quartets and Schubert’s mighty G major String Quartet, a work that spans the gamut of human emotions.

The Britten Sinfonia premieres Sir John Tavener’s last major concert work, Flood of Beauty (Saundarya Lahari).

Based on a Sanskrit poem by the 9th-century philosopher and poet Sankara, the piece is an attempt to show the rapture and bliss of the Divine Being through Hinduism – following Tavener's many revered musical journeys through Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Flood of Beauty was devised by the late composer, who would have turned 70 this year, to be performed with the instruments of a normal symphony orchestra, but all spaced around the auditorium – with Indian classical instruments tabla and sitar completing the ensemble.

'The audience, so that they are, as it were, "surrounded" by bliss and beauty' Sir John Tavener

London Sinfonietta

In the final months before his death at the age of just 41, Romitelli fulfilled a lifetime ambition: to create ‘an experience of total perception, plunging the spectator into a magma of sounds, shapes and colours’. Like the light shows of the 1960s or today’s rave-culture, Romitelli’s work thrusts you into a psychedelic new landscape where your every sense is heightened. Combining an ensemble and singer with electronic distortion, video screens, a light show and surround sound, this is opera as you’ve never known it.

“This is a multimedia opera with projections, three video screens and an orchestra that's amplified and processed, in many of the ways you would normally transform a rock guitar. But it's all done live, in the moment, and then spun around the room in surround sound.” Ian Dearden, London Sinfonietta Principal Player (electronics)

Being performed in London for the first time, with the original video art by Paolo Pachini and Leonardo Romoli, it promises 'a violent, abstract narrative denuded of all operatic artifice, providing an initiation rite of immersion and a trance of light and sound.'
