London Tour Dates Announced

We’ve just announced more London tour dates! In addition to taking part in Reverberations: The Influence of Steve Reich this May, we’ve got a three-concert Barbican residency - Awakenings - scheduled for January 2012.

The residency is set to launch on January 24, 2012, with a concert at the Hackney Empire entitled Made in America, featuring music by Bryce Dessner and Missy Mazzoli, and the London premiere performances of works by Terry Riley, Michael Gordon, and a staged version of George Crumb’s Black Angels.

On January 26 in Barbican Hall, Awakening: A Musical Meditation on the Anniversary of 9/11, a special program marking the anniversary of the events of 9/11, is a musical meditation with works from several countries, including the title composition from longtime Kronos collaborator, Uzbek composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky. Other composers featured on the program include Argentines Osvaldo Golijov and Oscar-winner Gustavo Santaolalla (from the film Darkness 9/11), Americans Michael Gordon and Terry Riley, Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen, and Canadian composer John Oswald. Also on the program are works from Iraq, India, and Sweden.

The third concert, Early Music, will include arrangements of music by Hildegard von Bingen, Alfred Schnittke, Henry Purcell, and Rahul Dev Burman.
