London Sinfonietta

What would the future hold without new music? What if all we ever heard were the same 10 symphonies again and again? ‘A civilisation that conserves’, said Boulez, ‘is one that will decay because it is afraid of going forward’.

Now in its 50th year, the London Sinfonietta has never been afraid to take risks. Join us for an exclusive conversation with co-founders David Atherton and Nicholas Snowman and Principal Pianist John Constable as they look back at how the orchestra first came to life.

Part of the Kings Place Turning Points series, here we explore our own turning point: how two forward-thinking individuals set in motion one of the most pioneering musical organisations in Britain. The evening will also include archive footage and chamber music from the ensemble’s early programming.


To get the most out of this Turning Points performance, sign up to exclusive extras from the London Sinfonietta after you’ve bought a ticket. You’ll receive further information on how to sign up on confirmation of booking.
