Nikki Losseff piano
Cage Concerto for Prepared Piano and Orchestra
Feldman Rothko Chapel
For the first concert in Getting Nowhere, pianist Nicky Losseff joins the University orchestra for Cage’s Concerto for Prepared Piano and Orchestra; Chimera and The 24 join forces for Morton Feldman’s luminous Rothko Chapel; and students and players from Getting Nowhere present Eric Satie’s symphonic drama Socrate.
The music department’s annual Practical Project draws together new students and returning students to create a production in just six weeks. This year’s ‘prac proj’ extends the format beyond the department and campus with a four-day festival celebrating the centenary of American composer and visionary John Cage – the largest such event in the UK this year. Three concerts featuring works by Cage, his friends and his aesthetic progenitors are just part of the celebration; for information about concerts 2 and 3, please follow links to the relevant What's On pages; for more information about the conference please go to the link below.
£10; concessions £8; students £3
