ELIZABETH OGONEK Sleep & Unremembrance (world premiere, Panufnik commission)
François-Xavier Roth conductor
London Symphony Orchestra
LSO Futures, the LSO's biennial festival of contemporary music, returns with two 20th-century masterpieces and a world premiere for the 21st.
François-Xavier Roth opens with Ligeti's Atmosphères, a swirling sound mass that rebelled as much against traditional forms as it did against the prevailing dogma of serialism. And Berio's Sinfonia, a monumental work from the Italian master, famous for its haunting ode to the late Martin Luther King and a middle movement that weaves three centuries of musical fragments into a rich tapestry of familiar quotations. 50 years on from their premieres, these two works provide a fitting frame for a new work by former LSO Panufnik composer Elizabeth Ogonek.
