  1. Variations 'Aldous Huxley in memoriam' - Igor Stravinsky
  2. Threni: id est Lamentationes Jeremiae Prophetae - Igor Stravinsky
  3. Tango, for chamber orchestra - Igor Stravinsky
  4. Sinfonia - Luciano Berio

Imagine a symphony that takes everything a symphony has been and everything a symphony could be: an orchestral showpiece that’s simultaneously a protest, a celebration, and an outrageous postmodern prank from the heart of 60s counterculture. Berio’s Sinfonia is all that and much more; and 50 years after its premiere, The Swingles – who sang in its historic first performance in 1968 – join forces with the LPO to bring it back to astonishing, psychedelic life. It’s a spectacular landmark on our Stravinsky journey, as well. Two piercing, crystal-clear musical rituals from 1958 and 1964 begin the concert – and throw open the doors of perception.
