The 20/19 Project: Studio Talk
In this compelling new series, we present a variety of answers to this question through sound, film, discussion and drawing. Central to The 20/19 Project is the transformational shift in culture over the last one hundred years through the lens of music and in particular, the viola.
The headline shows at Westgate Hall, a former drill hall in Canterbury, feature three outstanding viola sonatas of 1919 by composers Rebecca Clarke, Paul Hindemith and Ernest Bloch, and at Turner Contemporary in Margate, three UK premieres by some of the most persuasive and individual composers of our time. Knitting these together is a new audio-visual work by Ana Quiroga and Pedro Maia, using archive film and field recordings from East Kent.
Join our in-conversation series, Studio Talk, to explore the cultural, social and economic shifts facing the UK, with a line-up that includes former CIO at Credit Suisse and author of The Levelling, Michael O’Sullivan, and international viola soloist, Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti.
