London Contemporary Orchestra at the Roundhouse

A date for your snow-filled diaries:

Biosphere (aka Geir Jenssen) Shhoctavoski (UK premiere)
Steve Reich
Different Trains
Shiva Feshareki
TTKonzert (world premiere)
John Cage
Seventy-Four (UK premiere)

Shiva Feshareki (turntables)
Hugh Brunt (conductor)

Biosphere, aka Norwegian musician Geir Jenssen, has attracted a cult following for his ambient electronica – Shhoctavoski, his first piece for orchestra, is given its UK premiere with the Roundhouse Experimental Choir. Shiva Feshareki’s unconventional and often outrageous music has been performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and at the BBC Proms – she performs the world premiere of her concerto for turntables and orchestra.

Steve Reich’s Different Trains is one of the composer’s most evocative works – this event sees it performed in a venue originally built as a train engine shed, with live film created by young people from Roundhouse Studios. The performance finishes with the UK premiere of one of John Cage’s Seventy-Four, his swan song, composed months before his death in 1992.

Tickets: £7.50 – £15

And for those interested in some of the issues raised in my recent article on young performers, there will be a pre-concert talk in association with Young People in the Arts at 8.30pm in the Studio Theatre.
