The programme includes works by Ludwig van Beethoven – solo piano, string quartets, and transciptions of orchestral works – as well as music (some of it written as responses) from Orlando Gough, Graham Fitkin, Charlie Barber and American composer Robert Moran.
The performance is continuous – a musical journey through a variety of works – and lasts approximately 60 minutes. To enable the audience to access and experience the music through a fresh approach, we would prefer, where possible, to stage the performance as a promenade event, in the round, or other alternative staging which encourages an innovative interaction with the music.
