Music of Today: Friedrich Goldmann

Event Price: Free

The Philharmonia’s innovative Music of Today series offers the chance to hear new music. Friedrich Goldmann (1941-2009) is the best-kept secret of modern German music. An East German, Goldmann wrote cosmopolitan music that defied socialist realism with its strikingly original synthesis of tradition and fiercely inventive modernism. After German reunification, he remained a highly respected figure, equally revered as composer, conductor and pedagogue. We are delighted to be presenting a revival of two works from Goldmann's refined, vivid and imaginative output.
