Directors Nick Petrella and Adrian Spillett

Steve Reich Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ
Iannis Xenakis Persephassa

Persephassa is an immensely powerful work of percussive theatre. With six percussionists distributed around the audience, this is like no other chamber concert.

This rarely performed masterpiece will sit alongside Reich’s extraordinarily soothing Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices, and Organ which celebrates Reich’s 80th birthday.
