FRIDAY TONIC
CENTRAL BAR, ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL, SOUTHBANK CENTRE

Derek Bermel Wanderings
Bryce Dessner
 
Aheym
Osvaldo Golijov Last Round
John Adams Chamber Symphony

Holly Mathieson conductor

Kickstart your weekend with a selection of invigorating chamber music. Bermel takes us to Jereusalem and then West Africa, Dessner’s Aheym transforms the string quartet into a fierce, rhythmic contraption, while Golijov pits two string armies against each other in a tango duel.

In John Adams’ Chamber Symphony, a cowbell thuds out the beat as the music gets underway, providing the foundations around which 14 other musicians rhythmically duck and weave. Part-inspired by the hyperactive soundtracks of 1950s cartoons, the Chamber Symphony feels caffeine-infused as it energetically surges forwards.
