Welcome to Step 3 of our online guide to the London Sinfonietta’s concert on Saturday 15 October 2016.
Today’s installment is a sneak preview of ‘eight things you didn’t know about Stockhausen’, put together by Jonathan Cross (Professor of Musicology at Oxford University), who has co-curated Saturday’s event. Each is a window onto Stockhausen’s life and music, leaving you (we hope) with a better picture of the man and his work.
Although this step isn’t audio-illustrated yet, you can read the eight chapters in full around the foyer on Saturday evening, and hear them illustrated live by the performances.
