Songs of Wars I Have Seen at BBC Proms

For the first of two appearances at this year's BBC Proms we join forces with the London Sinfonietta to perform Heiner Goebbels' poignant work.
London, Royal Albert Hall £8 - £28 Info & Tickets

The OAE gave the first performance with the London Sinfonietta of Heiner Goebbels’s Songs of Wars I Have Seen, commissioned by the Southbank Centre to mark the reopening of the Royal Festival Hall, in 2007. We reunite under fast-rising conductor Chloe Rooke for a revival of this landmark setting of wartime diary entries by Gertrude Stein.
