News - Stealing, Borrowing, Remembering 2 - concert series from the Berkeley Ensemble
Thursday, September 27, 2012
Over the course of five concerts, join the Berkeley Ensemble as they explore how two twentieth-century masters, Igor Stravinsky and Lennox Berkeley, responded to the music of the past, re-working it in their own compositions before ultimately becoming historical figures themselves for the generation that followed.
What links Lennox Berkeley, often remembered for his cool and elegant scores, with the composer of the primitive, pounding Rite of Spring? What connects these composers with Classical masters Haydn and Mozart? History remembers innovators, but all four stole, borrowed and remembered the music of their past. Join the Berkeley Ensemble as they explore the connections between these seemingly irreconcilable figures in their new concert series at The Forge in Camden, London.
