Few composers have influenced contemporary British music as much as Michael Finnissy. A truely unique voice, whose music unwaveringly interrogates irreducable human truths, his huge oeuvre and loyal following stands as a testiment of personal commitment stated through art.
We’re delighted to welcome Michael to Club Inégales, to perform both his own piano works and with Peter Wiegold and resident band Notes Inégales in what promises to be a unique event amongst many in this his 70th year.
The concert will preceeded at 6.30pm by a Club Inégales ‘Rants’ discussion on the ‘Art of Remaking’ at which Michael will talk and discuss alongside composer and Professor of Composition at Oxford Brookes University Paul Whitty and Helen Julia Minors, Head of Music and Creative Music Technologies at Kingston University.
“His gigantic output of piano and chamber music, vocal and choral works, ensemble and orchestral pieces, is a testament to a lifetime’s interrogation of what it is and how it is that music means something, how the notes he writes down on his manuscript paper connect with culture, with our emotions, with our personal and social identities.” Tom Service.
Pre-concert talk 6:30pm, Performances from 8pm. Indian food and bar.
