WRITTEN IN FIRE: RAKHI SINGH AND VESSEL/SINGH QUARTET
A collaboration inspired by Janáček’s string quartet - Intimate Letters - with a memorised performance of the piece (yep correct, memorised) followed by the premiere of a new work created by violinist Rakhi Singh and pioneering electronic musician Vessel (Sebastian Gainsborough).
"The Janáček has a powerful urgency" says Vessel "driven by an obsessive desire that gives it a punk-ish irreverence."
Acoustic instruments combined with electronics? Yes please. Expect sound to be scattered to all corners of the darkened hall, enveloping fans in a contemporary response to a ground-breaking masterpiece.
