Time Unwrapped

The award-winning concert series at Kings Place, featuring concerts, workshops, initimate performances, and a lock-in

Wednesday 19th September 2018 - Monday 31st December 2018

What does music have to tell us about time?

Quite a lot it seems. Time Unwrapped, the award-winning Kings Place series shows how music can stretch time, condense it, reverse it, organise it, atomise it, tangle with it and suspend it altogether.

With performances throughout the autumn, listeners can enjoy 50 different experiences of time through music. Expect to be immersed in Manu Delago’s Human Clock, swept up in Adams’ spiraling loops, witness the superhuman complexity of Nancarrow’s canons, the heavenly lengths of late Schubert, or the eternal time of the Benedictine monks’ divine offices…

The series begins at the beginning, with Haydn’s Creation, and ends with Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time and a New Year’s Countdown from Aurora Orchestra. With Hugo Ticciati as artist-in-residence, the series features Aurora Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Carducci Quartet, Explore Ensemble, Imogen Cooper, Alasdair Beatson, Darius Brubeck Quartet, Iestyn Davies and many more.

Time Unwrapped concerts, workshops, and events take place from 19 September – 31 December. Discover the full schedule of performances, and book your tickets here.
