Norwegian composer and pianist Christian Wallumrød presents his latest ensemble in a UK première performance including music from new ECM album Outstairs.
Christian Wallumrød is now recognised as one of the leading figures in new European music, Wallumrød draws from renaissance composers, church and folk music, free jazz and John Cage to create intricately textured, often daringly quiet pieces where the interplay between what is written and what is improvised is paramount. This all-acoustic show will also respond to St George’s particular sonic character, ‘playing’ the building. Part of Bristol New Music 2014.
At 6.15pm, there will be a pre-concert talk (free to ticket holders), with Christian in conversation with Late Junction’s Fiona Talkington, presented as part of our new ‘Scene Norway Plus’ programme.
