The British premiere of Swiss pianist-composer Nik Bärtsch's work for chamber ensemble plus the UK debut of his new group Mobile Extended launch EFG London Jazz Festival's Kings Place Residency. The second weekend features the David Virelles Quartet and eminent saxophonist Andy Sheppard.
Harry Christophers' ensemble takes a trip back to 16th-century Seville, one of the biggest, richest and most cosmopolitan cities on earth. It was during this Spanish 'golden age' where arts and culture flourished. Two influential composers of this period were Guerrero and Lobo, master and disciple.
A much-anticipated return from the acclaimed Flemish composer and pianist Wim Mertens opens this year's LIFEM festival, which explores the music of Minimalist pianist-composers. French pianist Sylvain Chauveau, Argentinian composer Bruno Sanfilippo and Berlin-based British composer Greg Haines complete the impressive international line-up.
A small, stimuating festival of talks and discussions to exercise your brain on an autumn weekend. Trollope, Thatcher, inequality, classics, the best essay writers, overrated authors, our fascination with animals... These are just some of the topics the best thinkers and speakers in the field will be discussing over the weekend. Join in!
The Piano Trios and String Quartets of Michael Nyman, David Lang's Pulitzer award-winning The Little Match Girl Passion, Arvo Pärt's St John Passion from the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, Gavin Bryars' iconic Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet and Terry Riley's In C from Aurora are some of the highlights as the series continues.
Offering concerts, classes and workshops, the London Guitar Festival never fails to inspire the guitar aficionados as well as concert audiences. This year, the legendary flamenco guitarist Juan Martín and the Vida Guitar Quartet return to the festival and the talented Spanish guitarist Mabel Millán makes her UK debut.
London Chamber Music Series commemorates the 70th anniversary of Bartók's death by reconstructing the first UK performances of the complete cycle of his quartets. Each of the six quartets is coupled with one from another groundbreaking series, Beethoven's Op. 18 and one of Mozart's mature quartets.

Aurora's seasonal concerts for children aged 0-5 and 6+ will this time explore the magical music of Britten in a wild adventure through the House of Secret Sounds. Waltz with silver spoons, roam the hall of mirrors, and do battle with a mischievous bathtub, all brought to life with brand new chamber arrangements of Britten's music.
Kings Place's Resident Orchestra Aurora and Poet in the City join forces to present a unique evening of poetry, music and art, in a celebration of the life and work of Paul Celan.
