Venue: Kings Place, London (N1 9AG)
Riot Ensemble continues their ReNEW series at Kings Place with Georg Friedrich Haas’ multi-sensory work Solstices.
Performed from memory in over 75 minutes of complete darkness, Solstices is a mammoth experience of tuning, listening and beauty. Here, it is prefaced with a tribute to Oliver Knussen in his short, early (1972-73), and under-performed Océan de Terre which echoes Haas’ work in its dedication to long harmonic notes, which Knussen described as ‘closing imperceptibly, like a fan.’
