Experience a musical event like no other

Royal Albert Hall, London


London Sinfonietta and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment come together again to perform Heiner Goebbels's Songs of Wars I Have Seen, seventeen years after we gave the work's premiere performance in 2007.

Commissioned by the Southbank Centre to mark the reopening of the Royal Festival Hall, the two orchestras reunite under fast-rising conductor Chloe Rooke for a London revival of this landmark setting of wartime diary entries by Gertrude Stein, a work that manages to prove harrowing, poignant and consoling all at once, and whose visions of war have scarcely been more relevant.
