Part of The London Contemporary Music Festival


It?s one of the most unlikely musical kinships imaginable: the ferocious modernism of Germany's greatest living composer, Helmut Lachenmann, and the lush film scores of the Oscar-winning Italian composer, Ennio Morricone.

Yet it remains a fact: Morricone is Lachenmann?s favourite composer. What this night will demonstrate is that this is not as strange a musical friendship as it first appears.

Morricone?s eccentric chamber work will be performed alongside a near-complete cycle of Lachenmann?s spectacular solo piano pieces, including the epic Serynade.

Ennio Morricone: Suoni per Dino (1969)
