More than two centuries separate Bach’s great masterpiece, Art of Fugue BWV 1080, and the 20th century meditations of Steve Reich.
In the conclusion to the KLASSIK underground series, the parallel voices in Contrapunctus I, II and IX from Bach’s Art of Fugue arranged for String Quartet introduce Steve Reich’s ground-breaking Different Trains for String Quartet and Tape (1988), where live and pre-recorded music run parallel.
Visuals from Adelaide artist Margie Medlin will transport us from Bach to Steve Reich, creating a spellbinding musical and visual experience.
Whilst it is not mandatory to wear masks to enter KLASSIK underground we encourage patrons to protect themselves by wearing a mask.
KLASSIK underground is supported by Ulrike Klein AO.
