Trans came to Stockhausen in a dream, and this extraordinary orchestral masterpiece is every bit as dream-like in performance. The conductor is invisible, half the orchestra is hidden behind a vividly lit gauze, and those left in view are instructed to move like puppets. As listeners we are held in a trance, caught somewhere between the real and the imaginary, the present and the future. Oliver Knussen conducts this all-Stockhausen programme, as we celebrate a composer who has played a key part in the London Sinfonietta’s history.
