London: "Heiner Goebbels’s signature work captured the impersonal personality of the modern metropolis" (FT)

Heiner Goebbels performed in "A Room for London" - a boat on the rooftop of the South Bank Center on sunday February 26th and "Surrogate Cities" at the beginning of "Music Nation" in the Royal Festival Hall on March 3rd: "Jonathan Stockhammer exerted an iron control over the proceedings, so you could hear plenty of detail, even when the music was at its most violent... The orchestra was the real star, however, playing with terrific enthusiasm. The percussionists in particular, whirling vertiginously on a gallery above the tiers of musicians below, deserved a medal." (**** The Guardian)
