London Sinfonietta: Georg Friedrich Haas at St Paul's Hall, Huddersfield, 23 November 2019, free entry - Visit now
For this major London Sinfonietta commission, prolific contemporary composer Georg Friedrich Haas has written music in response to a retrospective celebrating British artist Bridget Riley, presented at Southbank Centre’s Hayward Gallery. Haas’ style, which juxtaposes different instrumental tunings, is a musical parallel to Riley’s intense visual aesthetic, which contrasts abstract blocks of colour in regular patterns – causing powerful visual sensations. Homage to Bridget Riley is a piece of music to submerge yourself in, and in this world premiere, London Sinfonietta will amalgamate the visions of two of the most extraordinary artists of our time.
