London Sinfonietta celebrates the life of provocatively distinctive composer György Ligeti in his centenary year.

Beloved of Stanley Kubrik, Ligeti’s richly avant-garde “micro-polyphony” explores how texture can be a structural device, and creates musical layers that create effects ranging from meditative stillness to cosmic existential terror. 

Before the concert, there will be performances and talks in the foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, demonstrating the unique and expressive voice of this remarkable composer.

György Ligeti  6 Bagatelles for Wind Quintet

György Ligeti (arr Abrahamsen)  No 5 “Arc-en-ciel” and No 11 “En suspens” from Études (arranged for chamber ensemble)
