Production details

Imagine a symphony that takes in everything a symphony has been and everything a symphony could be. Picture an orchestral showpiece that's simultaneously a protest, a celebration, and an outrageous postmodern prank from the heart of 1960s counterculture. Berio's Sinfonia is all that and much more. 50 years after its premiere, The Swingles - who sang in its historic first performance in 1968 - join forces with the LPO to bring it back to astonishing, psychedelic life. It's a spectacular landmark on our Stravinsky journey, as well. Two piercing, crystal-clear musical rituals from 1958 and 1964 begin the concert - and throw open the doors of perception Royal Festival Hall
