Barbican announces Sounds and Visions weekend4:44, 12th January 2018
The Barbican has announced details of Sounds and Visions, a weekend of classical and contemporary music and film curated by Max Richter and Yulia Mahr (11-13 May 2018).
Highlights of the weekend include the UK premiere of the orchestral version of Richter’s Infra; Bach from Vikingur Ólafsson and The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble; a new project from American saxophonist Colin Stetson– EX EYE; a new audio-visual show from electronic artist Jlin; and the UK premiere of Caroline Shaw’s Pulitzer Prize-winning composition Partita for 8 Voices.
Richter and Mahr said: ‘StudioRichterMahr, our 25 year collaboration, has taken many forms over the years. “Sounds and Visions” sums up one of our central concerns – that creativity exists as a social project that can illuminate the lives of individuals and society as a whole, and that art exists beyond all boundaries.’
Tickets cost £10-£35, and some events will be free.
