12 Ensemble with Anna Meredith & Jonny Greenwood

Live from the Barbican

12 Ensemble with their string instruments, standing in front of the Barbican tower with radio broadcast waves emitting

Anna Meredith and Jonny Greenwood join pioneering string orchestra 12 Ensemble in a genre-defying explosion of musical encounters, live-streamed into your home.

The programme takes us to the corners of our world in a creative collision of human nature and natural inspirations. Anna Meredith takes to the stage to play in her own work Moon, a suite of pieces for amplified chamber orchestra, electronics and live visuals from Anna’s sister, Eleanor Meredith, who responds to the music with live drawing and assembling of collages for each of the different phases of the moon.

Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood joins the stage to play tanpura in his flowing Water, inspired by his travels around Australian and India, before the ever-distinctive 12 Ensemble put their stamp on Shostakovich’s ferocious attack on totalitarianism. 

Under new guidelines, we’ve fewer available seats in our venues and thoroughly clean between performances. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household (or support bubble) and we ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.
