season highlights

Andriessen: M is for Man, Music & Mystery

Bach, Stravinsky, Mondrian, Dante... Louis Andriessen draws his inspiration from every corner of Western culture, and wrestles it into one of the most distinctive and inventive voices in contemporary art.

This season we celebrate six decades of music making at the edge: with full performances of his La Commedia (UK premiere) with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and La Passione with Britten Sinfonia, homages to personal heroes from Stravinsky to Steve Reich, and a BBC Total Immersion day culminating in the UK premiere of Rosa’s Horses – cowboy music with a surreal twist from a composer who acknowledges no frontiers but his own.

There are currently no Barbican events in the selected series.
