Back in 2012 we were treated to a rare performance from world-class composer and musician Gavin Bryars with his small acoustic ensemble in the intimate setting of our gallery front room.
We are thrilled to announce that on Saturday 1st July later this year Gavin will be back to perform newly arranged versions of his two most iconic pieces – The Sinking of the Titanic and Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet – one after the other, for one hour, without interval.
These chamber arrangements of his two earliest and best-known pieces have been created specially for the occasion; we can’t wait.
Morgan Goff, viola
James Woodrow, electric guitar
Nick Cooper, cello
Audrey Riley, cello
Ziella Bryars, cello
Gavin Bryars, double bass
The music of Gavin Bryars falls under no category. It is mongrel, full of sensuality and wit and is deeply moving. He allows you to witness new wonders in the sounds around you by approaching them from a completely new angle. With a third ear maybe…
