Rising Stars of Percussion
ECHO Rising Stars brings Europe’s finest young musicians to London – as picked by the programmers of Europe’s top concert halls.
Christoph Sietzen has been nominated by Philharmonie Luxembourg.
Fri 5 Jan 2018 1.00pm – 2.15pm
Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke’s, London
Percussion virtuoso Christoph Sietzen presents an evening at the cutting edge of contemporary percussion music – including a bespoke commission by Stewart Copeland.
The ECHO Rising Stars programme showcases Europe’s most dynamic young artists – and they don’t come much more dynamic than Sietzen. He’s put together a concert that spans the whole range of new percussion music, anchored by true modern classics by Xenakis, Pärt and Piazzolla.
But that’s just part of a musical universe that extends from the electronica of Emmanuel Sejourné to a new creation by Stewart Copeland of The Police. The Luxembourg-born Sietzen is fascinated by it all – and acknowledges no boundaries.
