Autumn on the South Bank is a strong programme series of the best contemporary music. The London Sinfonietta, Associate Artists at the Royal Festival Hall, offer a tribute to that 20th century individualist Iannis Xenakis, and a major premiere by Harrison Birtwistle. The Philharmonia's free 'Music of Today' series looks at two contrasting British figures, Steve Martland and Robin Holloway, and there is a chance to hear the colourful music of HK Gruber performed alongside Stravinsky by a starry lineup of chamber musicians. The series starts with Jonathan Powell's Sorabji recital (see below).
