Evening Concert: Hilary Hahn & Hauschka plus Jetsam
Hilary Hahn & Hauschka

Hilary Hahn & Hauschka come to Bishopsgate Institute for an evening of innovative improvised music. Their exceptional musicianship combined with their creativity as improvisers and chemistry as performers make for live shows of outstanding beauty and depth of feeling.

Two-time Grammy award-winning Hilary Hahn has gained international recognition for her fresh interpretations, compelling stage presence, and commitment to a wide range of repertoire and new music.

Hauschka, aka Volker Bertelmann, is a classically-trained pianist and composer. Inspired by forefathers such as John Cage and Erik Satie, Hauschka employs modifications ranging from gaffer tape to bottle tops, pingpong balls and aluminium foil, bending the familiar sound of this instrument to his will.

Support will be from Jetsam, an eclectic contemporary ensemble with backgrounds in classical music and dance/electronic music.

“Hilary Hahn, one of the greatest violinists in the world today” - Washington Post

“a joy to listen to and one of the brightest, most invigorating records I've heard all year.” - Pitchfork on Hauschka’s Salon Des Amateurs

This session is presented in partnership with The Vortex - a beacon for contemporary jazz and experimental music in the capital.

Plus from 6.30pm - interactive music in the foyer from CIRCE. Participate in making a live album of improvised electronic music!
