22 AND COUNTING

Since 1968, the London Sinfonietta has commissioned and premiered over 20 extraordinary works by Sir Harrison Birtwistle (22 to be precise!). His music has been a golden thread through our history and we hope you will join us for the world premiere of his newest commission Five Lessons in a Frame, which will feature in our concert Duets in a Frame on Wednesday 1 June at St John’s Smith Square.
