As a new weekly series, Sinfonietta Shorts Live will bring bite-size pieces of new music – commissioned by the London Sinfonietta and performed by its Principal Players – direct to your living rooms every Wednesday at 3.00pm. Future programmes will be announced in due course.
This live-stream featured Colin Matthews' Bell-Wether, an LS short commission supported by Lark Music, written in memory of former principal flute Sebastian Bell, and premiered at the Royal Festival Hall on 24 January 2018. We also heard Samantha Fernando's Kinesphere an LS short commission premiered at Kings Place on 26 November 2014. Both played live by London Sinfonietta Principal Michael Cox.
