Hugo Ticciati & O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra Looping Time
Shaker Loops was John Adams’ breakthrough work, in which he combined the process of phasing with waves of oscillating melodic cells to create complex, pulsing patterns. Wave-forms are also important in the music of Estonian Erkki-Sven Tüür, whose Second Violin Concerto receives its UK premiere from Hugo Ticciati. Formerly in a progressive rock band, Tüür draws on Gregorian chant and Minimalist processes to create music of deep stillness and unpredictable, explosive energy. Pérotin provides a prelude to Glass’s Symphony No. 3, at the heart of which is a monumental Chaconne.
