A Catalan Celebration

Wed 1 December 2021, 7.30pm
Queen Elizabeth Hall
Southbank Centre
London
SE1 8XX
United Kingdom

(Not an ILAMS event, but one we highly recommend!)

London Sinfonietta explores the music of Catalan visionary Roberto Gerhard in this sun-soaked and folkloric programme, alongside three pieces by living composers. Gerhard’s brilliantly virtuosic pieces are named for the zodiac symbols: Libra, his own sign, draws together a colourfully rhythmic folk-like melody with 12-tone influences, while Leo, written for his wife, contrasts the lion’s lazy peacefulness with awe-inspiring outbursts when roused.
