New Music for New Audiences

The London Sinfonietta always seeks to extend its reach to more people with the inspiring sound of new music. In the coming season we explore new concert formats performed in new locations around the country to make the exciting music of 20th and 21st century composers and artists more accessible than ever.

In the 2019/20 Season, the London Sinfonietta broadens its association with Music Theatre Wales, with three new productions touring England and Wales. The ensemble will also make an in-depth return to the music of the 20th century, upon which repertoire the ensemble built its international reputation and the concert series Sound Across a Century brings into focus the individual composers and composing trends that have influenced today’s music.

Turning Points embarks on a new touring format to venues around the UK including afternoon family concerts. Our New Music Channel will present new music of all kinds to audiences around the world.

Commissioning new music remains at the heart of the London Sinfonietta’s work, from larger scale new pieces by Georg Friedrich Haas, Tansy Davies and Edward Nesbit to the ongoing series of solo Sinfonietta Shorts created by early-career composers across the season.
