Jumoké Fashola – London Sinfonietta: Reassemble Online

Jumoké hosted the London Sinfonietta’s Reassemble Online festival, which streamed on the 25th of October, 2020. 

Founded in 1968 by David Atherton and Nicholas Snowman, the London Sinfonietta is the Resident Orchestra at the Southbank Centre and has been at the forefront of contemporary classical music for 50 years, having commissioned over 300 works and premiered many hundreds of others from such composers as Luciano Berio, Steve Reich, Django Bates, Jonny Greenwood and Iannis Xenakis. 

Starting at 2pm and ending at 9pm, Reassemble Online will be a free day of contemporary classical music featuring live performances of new work and replays of pre-recorded events being broadcast online for the first time.

The schedule includes new pieces by Shiva Fershareki and Gavin Higgins, a new performance of Dai Fujikura’s made-for-internet composition Longing from Afar and the first chance to see Richard Ayres’ The Garden with animations by Martha Colburn before ending with a composition with composer George Benjamin and a performance of one of his chamber works.
