London Festival of American Music

This programme explores music by living American composers. Beginning with a ten-thousand-year-old affirmation of spiritual balance, the plea for peace and justice is heard through different musical expressions. It also showcases the emerging composer Sarah Rimkus in a new work written for the Ligeti Quartet, inspired by the sounds of the human voice.
