There’s more Stockhausen coming our waymain
We spoke too soon when lamenting his neglect.
Aside from the upcoming Dutch blast, London’s South Bank has just announced a Karlheinz fest.
Here’s the small print:
The season culminates in the first UK performance of Stockhausen’s Donnerstag aus Licht since its UK premiere at the Royal Opera House in 1985. Recipients of the Fondation Stockhausen first prize in 2013, Le Balcon, and their founder and conductor Maxim Pascale make their UK debut with two performances of the opera, combining forces with London Sinfonietta, the New London Chamber Choir and the Royal Academy of Music Manson Ensemble in a new staged production directed by Benjamin Lazar (21-22 May 2019).
