Daniel Pioro • James McVinnie
Join two of the UK’s most innovative musicians, Daniel Pioro (violin) and James McVinnie (organ), as they play with the cathedral’s vast ambience in a groundbreaking musical journey through four centuries of music. Transporting you from the emotive drama of Biber’s 17th-century Rosary Sonatas to the poetic lyricism of Vaughan Williams’s Lark Ascending, their exploration also visits contemporary American composer Nico Muhly’s ambient Drones for Violin; a haiku-like balance of blank space and unwavering tones.
This performance opens our evening concert series, and the programme of new works alongside such well-known favourites is not to be missed.
