Stockhausen’s avant-garde landmark Gruppen (Groups) is written for three separate orchestras – consisting of the LSO and the Orchestra of the Lucerne Festival Academy – with the audience literally surrounded by an extraordinary and sometimes overwhelming soundscape. Rarely heard live due to its musical and practical demands, this is a special occasion not to be missed.
