Kokoro is the contemporary music ensemble of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The title 'Kokoro' comes from the Japanese word meaning 'heart', and the group, which was founded in 1994 comprises both players from the BSO and freelance musicians committed to performing 20th century and contemporary ensemble music.
Featuring colourful and varied works, the programme offers a fascinating musical journey focussing on two important movements in 20th century music, and illustrating how minimalism had its roots in the experimental music of the 1940s and 50s.
