London Sinfonietta/Cornelius review – neatly packaged collection of modern gems

Turning Points is the London Sinfonietta’s occasional series at Kings Place, focusing on some the 20th century’s most important composers and their key works, and designed to bring newcomers to modern music. Certainly the audience for the latest concert, which was introduced by Sara Mohr-Pietsch, contained few of the familiar faces seen at the Sinfonietta’s Southbank Centre dates. But then the programme that Gerry Cornelius conducted, containing short pieces by four of the indisputably great figures of the last 100 years, was much more like the kind of concert that was once the orchestra’s bread and butter, and which it plays all too rarely nowadays.

Energizing and excellent entertainment!

Symphony orchestras are often derogatorily described as being boring and only suitable for octogenarians. I wholeheartedly oppose that description every time it is spouted, and challenge anyone to continue to believe in the accuracy of those words after attending the Toledo Symphony Orchestra concert at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 28; this performance by TSO will close Darke County Center for the Arts’ 2021-2022 “Re: Vision” Artists Series season with an exclamation point. Anyone leaving this program still holding such a stodgy opinion should truly have their pulse and/or sanity checked!
