Written for voices and a dark mixture of low strings and guitar, Gavin Bryars showcases his virtuosic chamber ensemble in a lavish concert across musical settings, from 12th century sacred texts and Irish translations of Italian sonnets to his contemporary poetic collaborators. Renowned for his contemporary and minimalist composition, Bryars’ collection of laude and madrigals illustrates a subtle and seemingly effortless blend of influences and the rich harmony of his musical sources.

GAVIN BRYARS IN RESIDENCE
As prolific performer, accomplished bassist and pioneer of free improvisation, Gavin Bryars is recognised as one of Britain’s most important post-minimalist composers. From early collaborations with John Cage and Cornelius Cardew and with an interest in unorthodox collaborations, his repertoire of provocative works includes compositions for Merce Cunningham, William Forsythe, Hilliard Ensemble and the late Charlie Haden. Here, Bryars curates, performs and conducts from his extensive catalogue for this special ‘in residence’ series.
