Anthony Braxton Composition No 103 UK Premiere
Anthony Braxton Composition No 173
In 50 years of composing and performing, Anthony Braxton’s music has remained ineffable and incomparable. A multi-instrumentalist and improviser whose early records featured on the iconic leftfield jazz label BYG Actuel, he has gained renown as one of experimental music’s most adventurous voices, marrying theory to free play. In this unique showcase, led by Marco Blaauw, the Monochrome Project bring two pieces from his longstanding Composition series to life: 103, for seven trumpets, is performed hand-in-hand with 173, a pantomimic work combining complex instrumentation and experimental character acting.
Co-produced by hcmf//, Marco Blaauw with littlebit GbR and Ruhrtriennale; supported by Dutch Performing Arts
This event will finish at approximately 8:05pm.
