Total Immersion: The Music of Louis Andriessen

13 February 2016 / 13:00
Hall




A free introduction to this Total Immersion day, featuring Louis Andriessen and in conversation with Tom Service about his life and music and a concert from students from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Andriessen's hard-hitting, propulsive music burst on to the international scene in bold response to the American Minimalists. His dynamic, jazz-influenced art has proved a provocative and invigorating force in European music, while his collaborations with film-makers such as Peter Greenaway have pushed forward the boundaries of musical theatre and cinematic technique.
