Following the guidance from Public Health England, it is with heavy hearts that we inform you that our artistic programme will be suspended until the advice changes. Read our full statement.


The Japanese composer Tōru Takemitsu in focus, with musical performances, film and discussion.

Takemitsu had an especially close relationship with the London Sinfonietta, expressed through some extraordinarily beautiful ensemble scores which are now amongst the composer’s most celebrated works. The concert is part of the London Sinfonietta’s Turning Points series, which presents music in the context of the life and times of great composers whose output was so distinctive that it had an enormous impact on the direction of contemporary music.

The event also reflects a significant source of inspiration for the composer, in a programme based on his love for nature and the outdoors.

Date & start time:Sun 26 Apr – 6pm
Venue:Hall One
