Royal Festival Hall, London

Event Price: Free admission

The Philharmonia Orchestra's innovative Music of Today series gives audiences the chance to hear new music for free. Today's concert features new work from German composer York Höller, whose music is a fascinating symbiosis of diverse traditions and a masterful blending of intellect and poetry. Each piece reveals the touch of a master with a phenomenal ear and great cognitive power, capable of both energetic tensions and sheer sonic beauty. Höller, born in 1944, is a true classic of contemporary music.
