The London Sinfonietta presents the music of Japanese composer Tōru Takemitsu in this subtly colourful programme based on the composer’s love for nature and the outdoors.

The London Sinfonietta’s Turning Points series presents the music of great composers whose output was so distinctive that it had an enormous impact on the direction of contemporary music. 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.
