Riot Ensemble - House of Rumours @ London Unwrapped | Sounds of a Migrant City

Thursday, 21 January 2021, 7.00pm

Riot Ensemble presents ‘House of Rumours’ – an exuberant programme marking the return of live music to Hall One. This concert combines the joy of Errollyn Wallen’s Horseplay and the thrumming energy of Shruthi Rajasekar’s Spin Excitations with one of the great works of the contemporary cannon: Winternacht by Hans Abrahamsen. Finally, the world premiere of Philip Cashian’s House of Rumours, a shadowy collection of shouts and murmurs for two groups of players, closes this concert celebrating London and the many voices that make its magic.
