Celebrating the composer in his centenary year

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.

Programme to include:
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)
György Ligeti Balada si joc
György Ligeti Cello Concerto
Unsuk Chin Advice from a Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland
Conlon Nancarrow (arr. Adès) Three Movements
György Ligeti Melodien
