A concert of works for various keyboard instruments, which have been recorded as part of Ryan A. Probert’s new album, presented here in new and expanded versions.
Ryan’s music takes inspiration from conscious and unconscious memory, using this to find unique approaches to composition and combining his love of melody, certain sonorities and episodic structure. The concept that outdated, kitsch or overly clichéd material can be transformed into something new and exciting often appears in his work.
‘Authentically of the present moment in their lightness and stubborn eccentricity… charmingly Satie-like in their oddity.’ Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, on the music of Ryan Probert.
