Many of the events I was planning to list for the month of December have come and gone, but here are two that are still available.
Sounds and Words
December 13, 7:30pm
St Anne’s and St Agnes church
Gresham Street, London
A rare chance to hear a trio of Berlin-based Tisha Mukarji playing inside piano, with the prepared violin of Angharad Davies, and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga on zither – a meeting of three sensitive musicians in music of delicate poise and warm elegance. Also on the programme, the legendary sound of John Butcher, and the spoken word of Carol Watts.
For the rest of the month, there is a sale on all six discs of Michael Pisaro’s Gravity Wave label. Find out more on the site and on the facebook page (including links to many reviews). I have them all, and I want more. This is really beautiful work.
Sound and Music has two conversations posted on SoundCloud that are relevant to these events:
Poetry as Score: Will Montgomery in discussion with Antoine Beuger, Michael Pisaro and Manfred Werder
Hidden Music: Angharad Davies
