The Rest is NoiseOne of the Southbank Centre's most ambitious classical music projects to date, The Rest is Noise is a year-long festival that takes audiences on a chronological journey through music in the 20th century. Based on the 2007 book by Alex Ross, the series will bring the book to life through concerts, performances, films, talks and debates. The backbone of the festival will be provided by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, who will provide more than 30 concerts to help with the storytelling and dramatisation of the most important musical, political and social moments of the 20th century. Jude Kelly, the Southbank Centre's Artistic Director, describes the festival as viewing 20th-century music "through the prism of history with its revolutions and counter-revolutions, its major moral and philosophical upheavals around race, gender, faith, political credo and pacifism and its new relationship to technology and artistic democracy."

 

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
