Featuring an entire sonic journey from ‘soft’ to ‘LOUD’ repertoire, this revelatory programme juxtaposes Jacobean lute music for classical guitar with electric guitar arrangements of multi-tracked repertoire. This includes US Pulitzer Prize winning composer Julia Wolfe’s elegy LAD, (originally written for nine bagpipes), David Lang’s Killer and Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint.
The reviews are in:
‘Bracingly original…the results, like the performances themselves, are spectacular’ – GRAMOPHONE
‘A definitive performance of Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint’ – THE GUARDIAN
‘Surprisingly urgent and thrusting’ – BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
