LCO return to Spitalfields to perform new work by Martin Suckling
Thursday 8 September 2011
We are very excited to be returning to Spitalfields Music on Monday 12 December for their Winter Festival. A new violin concerto by Martin Suckling for Agata Szymczewska and the LCO forms the centrepiece of the programme, alongside Vivier’s Pulau Dewata and Grisey’s Vortex Temporum. The commissioning of Martin’s work has been made possible by London Music Masters and their phenomenally successful ‘Buy a Bar’ campaign.
In the run-up to the performance, the LCO will be collaborating with LMM on their music education programme, the Bridge Project. Working with Agata, Martin and players from the LCO, up to 70 children will create and perform their own pieces inspired by Martin’s composition. They will also have the opportunity to hear the commissioned piece in rehearsal ahead of the premiere.
