Playlist: Karlheinz Stockhausen

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 16:01

In May and June 2019, the Southbank Centre hosted Stockhausen: Cosmic Prophet – a celebration of the architect of modern music that explores the different sides to his revolutionary works.

As a lead into the series we put together this special chronological playlist to offer a taste of the remarkable musical mind of Karlheinz Stockhausen. Beginning in 1950 with Chöre für Doris – a three-movement a capella choral composition dedicated to the composer's first wife, Doris Stockhausen, née Andreae – the playlist ends with Third Hour from Klang, the cycle of compositions Stockhausen was working on at the time of his death in 2007.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
