Britten Sinfonia at Lunch

The Britten Sinfonia play works by Shostakovich and Lou Harrison in Norwich and premiere Surreal Trip by Joey Roukens at Wigmore Hall in London.

The Britten Sinfonia play works by Shostakovich and Lou Harrison as part of their award winning 'At Lunch' series in Norwich.

Plus 'Lost in a Surreal Trip' by the young Dutch composer Joey Roukens which the Sinfonia premiered in March 2015 at the Wigmore Hall in London. Roukens describes it as 'a rather kaleidoscopic, psychedelic piece that evolves not unlike the experience of a 'trip': the music constantly shifts shapes, with rapidly changing, highly contrasting moods and emotions, ranging from the quietly ethereal to the rhythmically energetic to the darkly ferocious.'
