With: Christopher Hobbs, John Tilbury
In a revolutionary age of music, is John Cage the only real revolutionary?
“Whenever I’ve found that what I’m doing has become pleasing, even to one person, I have redoubled my efforts to find the next step” he said. And yet the music is often so gentle and serene that only the hidebound could be affronted by it. Those who heard the Piano Concerto at the last Bristol University Arts Festival will know whether they were. Arnolfini Music starts its first full season with a concert entirely devoted to Cage’s music and it is hoped to include one British first performance. Gavin Bryars, Christopher Hobbs and John Tilbury, all brilliant exponents of aleatory music, will take part in this concert.”
