Members of London Symphonia
The First World War destroyed empires, created new nation-states, and caused unprecedented social and economic upheaval. It led to the rise of Soviet communism and Nazi fascism. It also unleashed a flurry of creativity that inspired some of the most unforgettable music of the 20th century.
Join London Symphonia’s own ‘cabaret band’ in the intimate setting of Talbot Street Church for an eclectic and electrifying program that includes Bohuslav Martinu’s jazz-inspired Revue de Cuisine (1927), Igor Stravinsky’s Faustian fable, L’Histoire du Soldat (1919), George Gershwin’s Three Preludes (1926), and Kurt Weill’s iconic Mack the Knife (1928).
