Anna Meredith and Jonny Greenwood join pioneering string orchestra 12 Ensemble in a genre-defying explosion of musical encounters, live-streamed into your home.
The programme takes us to the corners of our world in a creative collision of human nature and natural inspirations. Anna Meredith takes to the stage to play in her own work Moon, a suite of pieces for amplified chamber orchestra, electronics and live visuals from Anna’s sister, Eleanor Meredith, who responds to the music with live drawing and assembling of collages for each of the different phases of the moon.
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood joins the stag to play tanpura in his flowing Water, inspired by his travels around Australia and India, before the ever-distinctive 12 Ensemble put their stamp on Shostakovich’s ferocious attack on totalitarianism.
