London Symphony Orchestra/François-Xavier Roth

The Music of Tomorrow – LSO Futures

François-Xavier Roth conducting

Vivid, moreish music by Unsuk Chin and Donghoon Shin, plus beguiling works by emerging talents, conducted by François-Xavier Roth.

The Programme

An orchestra holds infinite possibilities for music-making. Unsuk Chin's SPIRA and Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra both show off the capabilities and curiosities of the instruments of the orchestra. Donghoon Shin's eloquent Cello Concerto, inspired by the eerie poetry of Georg Trakl, sees the LSO's own Principal Cello take the spotlight as soloist.

And how do today's emerging composers, the voices of tomorrow, begin to work with a major orchestra? Two composers from the LSO Panufnik Composers Scheme present brand new music created in collaboration with the Orchestra.

LSO Futures

LSO Futures is a collaboration between François-Xavier Roth and the LSO that goes back over a decade – 'a festival championing new music, not just the music of our time, but also music from the last decades', in the conductor's own words.

This performance will end at approximately 9.35pm, including a 20-minute interval.

Produced by the London Symphony Orchestra
