Stockhausen: Cosmic Prophet

Celebrate the architect of modern music across three projects that explore different sides to his revolutionary works.

Donnerstag aus Licht combines music, movement and light to form a monumental opera that hasn’t been heard in the UK since 1985. The energetic young ensemble Le Balcon joins forces with London Sinfonietta, the New London Chamber Choir and musicians from the Royal Academy of Music to take on this sonic spectacle, appearing for two nights only in May.

And for the end, we go back to the beginning. To cap off our Stockhausen focus, our Artist in Residence Pierre-Laurent Aimard curates a weekend of the early revolutionary works that set a new course for 20th-century music.
