About this event

Glass’ early minimalist primer Music in Contrary Motion is paired with movements from his rarely heard 1977 album North Star.

They provide a foil to the ecstatic and affecting music of new generation composers Gabriella Smith and inti figgis-vizueta.

The concert culminates in John Adams’ Hallelujah Junction.

Organist James McVinnie is a Southbank Centre Resident Artist for Spring/Summer 2024.
