Sir Harrison Birtwistle The Message
György Ligeti Ramifications
Mica Levi New work (world premiere)
Georg Friedrich Haas Open Spaces II (UK premiere)
Jonny Greenwood smear
David Sawer April \ March (BBC & RPS co-commission & world premiere)
Our Prom heads to Camden’s industrial answer to the Royal Albert Hall for a programme which takes its lead from Ligeti’s iconic Ramifications.
This embracing score, for two groups of spatially positioned strings, is heard alongside music by one of Ligeti’s natural musical heirs, Georg Friedrich Haas, and other new pieces concerned with physical space.
The concert culminates in a major work from David Sawer that reflects the energy and physicality of dance.
This performance will take place in and around Ron Arad’s Curtain Call installation. We encourage audience members to move around the space to get the most from this immersive experience.
