Robert Worby presents the BBC SO's performance of Stockhausen's meditative work Inori, given at the Barbican in London as part of their Total Immersion Stockhausen Day.
In a performance given at London's Barbican as part of the Stockhausen Composer Day, Robert Worby presents the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Stockhausen's meditative work Inori.
Written in 1973-74, Inori is based on prayer-like gestures interpreted on stage by a mime and a dancer. The expressive movements, performed by the two silent soloists and drawn from a variety of religious practices, are mirrored in the response of two orchestral groups.
Robert is also joined by Stockhausen authority Robin Maconie to discuss the piece.
