8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Composer/choreographic pianist Eleonor Sandresky will be performing a concert tribute to Philip Glass in celebration of his 80th birthday in Cafe OTO London on July 3rd. Long-time Philip Glass Ensemble member and guest musician with Glass in a number of roles, as well as festival co-founder (MATA), Eleonor counts him as one of her mentors.
This concert will pay tribute to his fearless innovation as an artist, his curiosity about the world and his open heart and mind. Sandresky will also focus on the work of others that are on the exciting forefront of new music, featuring her conceptual choreographic piano and electronic work and new works by UK-based MATA alumni Jobina Tinnemans for piano, sound processing and paper page turners. These curated pieces, like Glass’ early work, expand the idea of what is concert music and how we experience it.
