London Sinfonietta

Explore some of the London Sinfonietta’s most iconic commissions as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations. From the architectural principles that guide Xenakis’ Thallein, to the richness of Birtwistle’s Silbury Air, inspired by the mystery of the prehistoric Silbury Hill in Wiltshire, these landmark pieces give a sense of the musical journey the London Sinfonietta has taken.
