In a bespoke programme for Time UnwrappedAlasdair Beatson has devised a playful exploration of metre and mechanism. His ingenious collage of reconstructed fragments contrasts the miniature toccatas of Beethoven and Ligeti with visions of the infinite by Schumann, Messiaen and Kurtág, alongside evocative sounds of dawn, distant bells and the nocturnal whispers of insects. The intricate, virtuosic mechanisms of Birtwistle’s Harrison’s Clocks will punctuate the recital like the chiming of the hours.

This event is part of the Time Unwrapped 2018 at Kings Place.
