The Riot Ensemble’s forthcoming concert at Kings Place, London, ‘This Lunar Beauty’, previously announced for Friday, January 21 at 7pm in Hall 2, has been postponed for Covid-related reasons.

The concert will now take place on Wednesday, March 16 at 8.30pm – also in Hall 2 of Kings Place.

Ticket holders are advised that all tickets remain valid for the new date and will be automatically transferred to Wednesday, March 16. Those who cannot make the revised date are entitled to a refund.

This Lunar Beauty is a spell-binding, subversive programme of hidden voices and forms part of the centre’s Voices Unwrapped series, as well as continuing Riot Ensemble’s association with Kings Place.

All the works in the programme are tied to the voice in intimate ways: a meditation on a Bach Chorale by Sofia Gubaidulina, Anna Clyne’s melodic ‘creation upon a sound space’ which weaves in, out and around the audience, and a secret text sung to themselves by a violinist.

A temporarily ‘lost’ piece by Rufus Isabel Elliot is given its long-delayed world premiere. Anchoring the concert – in his centenary year – is one of Xenakis’ masterworks: A L’ile de Gorée for harpsichord and ensemble featuring soloist Gośka Isphording.

Tickets: £16.50 + £3 booking fee (£8.50 ‘Under 30’s tickets available)
