LSO Futures, the LSO's biennial festival of contemporary music, returns with two chamber symphonies written at opposite ends of the 20th century that follow a world premier from the 21st.
Donald Glaser won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1960 for his invention of the bubble chamber, a piece of equipment used for the study of subatomic particles. This is how we begin the 2016 edition of LSO Futures, with a breakthrough: a world premiere from Darren Bloom inspired by this landmark scientific event. Then it’s two chamber symphonies, two more breakthroughs and two very different composers: Schoenberg’s chamber symphony, written on the brink of his revolutionary break with tonality, and Thomas Adès’s, a work of staggering maturity and accomplishment from the 19 year old who would go on to become one of Britain’s leading living composers.
