An illustrated lecture presented by Linda Buckley

Two iconic composers, two masterpieces of their genre.

Steve Reich’s pulsating, iconic Different Trains evokes a mesmerising world ofmovement generated by a live string quartet simultaneously mixed with authentic recordings of American and European train sounds of the 1930’s and 40’s and recollections of actual Holocaust survivors to whom train travel meant something very different.

Jonathan Harvey’s journey is more metaphysical, where the quartet are the catalysts for a musical journey which subtly explores sound resulting in an ecstatic and euphoric dream-like conclusion.
