For this gig we have removed the seats in Sage One to create an immersive experience; pull up a bean bag and enjoy Christian Löffler’s performance.

Following a sold-out concert in Paris’ Philharmonie, Christian Löffler brings his ‘Parallels’ tour to the After Dark Festival, joined by the Royal Northern Sinfonia String Quartet. Released on Deutsche Grammophon, “Parallels: Shellac Reworks” sees Löffler rework some of the world’s greatest classical composers into his own downtempo soundscapes, including reworks of J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Wagner, Smetana and Bizet. Past and present collide on stage, through the live mixing of the string quartet with Löffler’s own electronic productions: a mesmerising and immersive experience.

The German musician and producer has become well known for his live sets and the energy he brings to the stage which sets off audiences on their own emotional journeys. With the Parallels tour, he is not only tributing illustrious classical composers but also re-inserting their music into contemporary discourse.
