London Sinfonietta

A rare programme of music by Argentinian-German composer Mauricio Kagel, who thought of his music as theatre, creating both aural and visual elements for his audience to enjoy. Many of Kagel’s works include stage instructions for the performers, from choreographed movements, to specific facial expressions used to accentuate or punctuate the music.

This concert is part of the London Sinfonietta’s Turning Points series, presenting music by composers whose output was so distinctive that it influenced the course of music history.

Please note that the main concert will be split into three parts taking place in Hall One and Hall Two. Audience members will be asked to move from one venue to the other during the two intervals. The concert starts at 7pm in Hall One and the approximate end time is 9.30pm. 

Art installation from 6.30pm in St Pancras Room

An installation inspired by Mauricio Kagel created by students of the University of Sussex will be available to view before the concert, throughout the two intervals and after the concert.

Date & start time:Sat 1 Feb – 7pm
