An Imagination Shared

Audience participation is the central element of this concert with music by Alex HoRyan Carter and Ligeti. The evening begins with Ho’s piece, Breathe and Draw (for sinfonietta, two conductors and audience participation) which encourages the audience to draw breath in response to the music, followed by Carter’s Concerto Molto Grosso (for audience and orchestra) which puts the audience’s mobile phones centre-stage as soloists. The unique participatory evening closes with 100 metronomes being set for Ligeti’s iconic Poème symphonique for 100 metronomes; a piece that is different every time it is performed.

Sat 16 Mar at 7:30pm at Royal Festival Hall
The Gift of Youth
