Details

Steve Reich and Gerhard Richter – two giants of contemporary culture – come together in a major new collaboration. Together with Britten Sinfonia they’ve combined original music and digital visuals, algorithmically derived from Richter’s painting “946-3”, to create an artwork that is boundlessly more than the sum of its parts. “A stream of images, its rhythmic flow interpreted by music and, at the same time, a musical composition visualized by film images” is how Richter describes a collaboration that’s likely to be one of the most significant moments in contemporary art this year.

Concert preceded by 'In Conversation', a pre-concert talk led by Dr Kate Kennedy which introduces the programme of the evening concert. 6:30pm, free to ticket holders for the evening concert.
