This performance harks back to the days of Boulez’s famous avant-garde concerts at the Roundhouse in 1974, and offers a chance to hear large-scale contemporary works in an inimitable setting.
Together with an intense work by the Russian Galina Ustvolskaya (1919-2006), Sir George Benjamin conducts his own Palimpsests (2002), inspired by ‘the concept of a piece of parchment, or slate, used over and over again for different pieces of music’.
We are pleased to announce that Ueli Wiget (piano) will be joining Ensemble Modern Orchestra and George Benjamin (conductor) as soloist.
