Hilda Paredes Señales UK Premiere

An explosive combination, Britain’s foremost contemporary music ensemble the London Sinfonietta joins forces with world renowned violinist Irvine Arditti to present the UK premiere of Hilda Paredes’s acclaimed violin concerto Senales alongside some of its most iconic commissions. From the architectural principles that guide Xenakis’ Thallein, to the richness of Birtwistle’s Silbury Air, inspired by the mystery of the prehistoric Silbury Hill in Wiltshire, and Colin Matthews’ Contraflow, co-commissioned with hcmf// in 1992, these landmark pieces give a sense of the musical journey the London Sinfonietta has taken in its 50th anniversary year.
