King’s Place to celebrate tenth anniversary with Time Unwrapped12:19, 13th September 2017
King’s Place will celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2018 with a year-long series dedicated to time.
Curated with artist-in-residence, violinist and director Hugo Ticciati, Time Unwrapped will explore the relationship between music and time.
The series begins with Haydn’s Creation from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and concludes with a New Year’s Eve event with Aurora Orchestra.
It will encompass a range of temporal experiences, from stasis to loops, and will feature a number of works which take time as their subject.
The Time & Tradition folk weekend will look at great folk dynasties, and The Ragging of Time will shine the spotlight on jazz. Other events will explore Einstein’s relative time had its correlatives in musical developments, and how Monteverdi turned ‘old’ music into new.
Hugo Ticciati will present six key programmes, including a project with Dame Evelyn Glennie, Mozart’s Requiem with Voces8 and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time.
Artists appearing include Brodsky Quartet, Carducci Quartet, Chiaroscuro Quartet, Colin Currie Group, Imogen Cooper, Iestyn Davies, Explore Ensemble, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Thomas Gould, London Sinfonietta, Víkingur Ólafsson, Richard Reed Parry, Lawrence Power, Scottish Ensemble, Mark Simpson, The Sixteen and John Tilbury.
