Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS @ Wylam
RNS @ Wylam 2
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Arvo Pärt Summa
Steve Reich Vermont Counterpoint
Gavin Bryars Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet
It starts on the streets of South London, with a homeless old man singing quietly to himself. It becomes…well, there isn’t really any way to describe what you’ll think or feel next, as Gavin Bryars weaves that broken scrap of human feeling into a sonic experience unlike anything else in 20th century music. Like the serenely unfurling soundscape of Arvo Pärt’s Summa and the dancing, ever-renewing sonic patterns of Steve Reich’s groundbreaking Vermont Counterpoint, Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet is a true modern classic: music with the power to provoke, to move, and to leave you transformed. Try it.
