London Sinfonietta & Central Saint Martins present
Six films add a new dimension to bite-sized pieces of the best contemporary music.
This collection of Sinfonietta Shorts – pieces of music commissioned, recorded and released as downloads by the London Sinfonietta – includes Anna Meredith’s Axeman for amplified bassoon, Samantha Fernando’s Kinesphere for solo flute and Siren by Jorden Hunt for solo trumpet. Central Saint Martins students have made a film in response to each, created through close collaboration with the composers and players. They will be premiered over an hour-long screening, accompanied live by London Sinfonietta soloists.
