Stepha Schweiger‘s stage work “The Mark on the Wall” based on Virginia Woolf’s short story will be premiered concertante on the 13. August in London at the “tête-à-tête”-opera festival. Impressions from a previous version can be seen on YouTube.
(We worked on the performance materials and an audio synthesis.)
During this year’s “Proms” a studio album, “Passages” from 1990 which combined the minimalist music of Philip Glass with Pandit Ravi Shankar’s sitar and the traditions of Hindustani classical music will receive its first complete live performance. The recording as well as manuscript sketches served as the basis for the reconstruction of the Shankar scores. The Britten Sinfonia under Karen Kamensek will be joined by Ravi Shankar’s daughter, sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar for this premiere.
