Abstruckt Ensemble and the Vickers Bovey Duo
Wednesday 4 April, 8.00pm
LEVEL 3 DAYSTAGE / FOYERBook now
Our second NightMusic event brings a dynamic double bill, combining the guitar artistry of the Vickers Bovey Duo and the incisive percussion of Abstruckt Ensemble.
Since graduating from Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Academy, Julian Vickers and Dan Bovey have racked up numerous prestigious awards, their passion for contemporary music earning them slots on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and Late Junction. This performance features two major commissions from Joe Cutler and Michael Finnissy, alongside exquisite Baroque pieces by Rameau and smouldering Argentinean tango from Piazzolla.
Regulars in mould-breaking London contemporary series, Nonclassical, Listenpony and Multi-storey, the Abstruckt Ensemble’s awesome foursome add theatricality to their virtuosity, as you can see and hear when they perform an eclectic programme that includes atmospheric works by Freya Waley-Cohen and Thierry De Mey and which ends with Steve Reich’s classic Mallet Quartet, which pits marimbas against vibraphones.
