Lawrence Power is soloist-director of Collegium, an exciting new group formed from Europe’s finest young musicians. For their Kings Place debut they traverse all four seasons in a journey that takes us from Schubert to Jazz-Age America.

Piazzolla’s tango-charged Four Seasons of Buenos Aires is laced with arrangements of haunting Romantic Lieder. Like Piazzolla, Copland discovered his unique ‘national’ voice when studying with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, a voice expressed with such exhilarating freshness in the ballet Appalachian Spring. By contrast, it was Darius Milhaud’s encounter with American jazz that inspired his uproarious Création du monde, here performed in its piano quintet version.
