Wolfgang Rihm with the London Sinfonietta

Evenings with the London Sinfonietta can be among the great unexpected joys of classical music.  Unless you’ve seen it all before, you don’t know quite what to expect when the lights go down.  In our hype driven culture, seeing or hearing without preconceptions is a rare treat.  Sometimes you get a better deal than other times, and I can’t help feeling that their Wolfgang Rihm at 60 was one of their less riveting evenings.  But that’s the lottery.  Read my full review at Classicalsource.
