In an epic feat of orchestral organisation, Sir Simon Rattle will assemble 109 members of the LSO for two rare performances of Stockhausen’s ‘Gruppen’ (‘Groups’) this Saturday, in the suitably vast setting of the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.

Written for three separate orchestras, Stockhausen’s most ambitious work will be performed promenade-style with no set seating – so you’ll get to experience the full stereophonic soundscape from wherever you choose to hang out during the hour-long performance. With powerful pieces like Messian’s Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum (I Await the Resurrection of the Dead) heading up the bill, the effect should be nothing short of earth-shattering.

This is a one-off opportunity to experience world class musicianship in a venue with some truly awesome acoustics, as anyone who managed to bag a ticket to the legendary Kraftwerk residency will be all too eager to tell you.
