A gorgeous Schubert melody with an intoxicating contemporary twist – we invited Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra into our stunning gallery space to give us a sneak preview of what to expect from their upcoming Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room show!
The concert on Wednesday 12 October will showcase Simko’s trademark instrumentational and compositional blend of classical and electronic music, with music from the London Electronic Orchestra’s debut album, released in May 2016. Featuring original compositions and remixed masterworks (including Schubert’s ‘Schwanengesang (Ständchen), above), the album is a boundary-pushing, spell-binding revelation that reimagines modern dance music as classical.
‘Fresh, exciting, contemporary yet, of course, classical – it is something which could no doubt be translated into concert halls across the country and the world. It is a project that has the power to bring together typically disparate audiences; the world of club-goers and those who love classical music.’
