London Sinfonietta. Poppe: Speicher
Date(s) - 10 Mar 2016
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Much more than just a piece of music, Enno Poppe’s Speicher is a complex structure of variations and repetitions that pushes its 22 players to their interpretative and technical extremes. But it is just as immersive for its audience as it is for those on stage. Speicher is an adventure in active listening –gradually revealing clues as to what might be coming next through an unpredictable network of derivations. As we, too, become part of the unfolding music, so it truly comes alive. Developed over five years and premiered in Europe in 2013, this will be its landmark UK premiere.
